The Watermark at 3030 Park recently hosted a special ceremony honoring Syncere Klock, a 13-year-old eighth grader at the Luis Munoz Marin School in Bridgeport, who was named as the senior living community’s newest “Watermark kid.”
Watermark for Kids is an organization that empowers young people to build character, strengthen their leadership skills and express their creativity, compassion and spirit. It is a national 501(c) (3) non-profit organization founded by Tucson, Arizona-based Watermark Senior Living Communities, the company that manages The Watermark at 3030 Park.
Watermark residents and associates select a young man or woman from the community for the honor, and then provide encouragement and support as their “Watermark Coach.” Syncere’s coach was Cindy McGuire, Fitness Director at The Watermark at 3030 Park.
Syncere was chosen for this honor due, in part, to the time and energy he has spent working with Sister Theresa at the Daughter of Charity of the Most Precious Blood Teen Center in Bridgeport, an organization that helps guide local teenagers to brighter futures, away from drugs, alcohol and violence.
The Watermark rewarded Syncere with the opportunity to spend last summer at Camp Jewell in Colebrook, free of charge. Syncere was the guest of honor at a special ceremony at The Watermark, where he was able to meet associates and residents and share photos of his time at camp.
