Jade Uffelman (270) and Pierre Powers (270)

“Our love story actually started pre-Central!  Pierre and I grew up in the same neighborhood and have known each other for ~18 years. It wasn’t until high school where we bonded freshman year on the track team (he taught me how to properly run long distance) and took the bus home together. He and I were platonic friends- we were both in long term relationships during our time at Central. We reconnected in our mid-twenties when we ran into each other during a night out in center city (a bar called Frankie Bradley’s). We hit it off effortlessly, I realized that this man had become boyfriend material. We have been dating now for about two and a half years. We share a home, animal babies (2 dogs and a kitty), and go on fun/spontaneous excursions all the time! It really pays off to be friends first, love second. We partly attribute our great friendship to the nurturing environment that Central had provided! 270! <3”
