One Strong Girl

Here's Jenna Chiaradio, who will turn 16 next month. She's a rising junior at Bristol Eastern High School, a top student, a second-degree black belt in karate and a boxer.
She's quite a lovely girl. I talked with Jenna today about how she got into boxing and about a fight she'll be in tomorrow night at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.
Her fight will be one of several that night, part of an event called "Fight the Good Fight" to benefit the families of the men who died at the Kleen Energy plant in Middletown earlier this year.
I wrote a story about Jenna for Saturday's edition of The Bristol Press ( so you can read more about her there if you like.
