Sometimes, relationships just click. That’s how it’s been from the start for Alray Scholar and Bunker Hill Community College student Charita Parham (L) and her Alray mentor, Alexa Rentas (R). In the late summer of 2012, when mentoring chair Jack O’Brien introduced them over coffee, the two women instantly hit it off. As Alexa recalls, after a while Jack sensed that the connection between her and Charita was so strong that he excused himself, saying, “I don’t think I’m needed here!” Over their last year-plus working together, their connection has only grown stronger, to the point where they now sometimes finish each other’s sentences.
