A number of years ago, the Grafton School Committee decided there should be a formal way to show our appreciation and gratitude for individuals or businesses in Grafton who demonstrate ongoing support of Grafton Public Schools. This year we are pleased to announce the Partner in Education Award will be presented to Richard McCarthy just prior to the start of our Annual Town meeting on May 13th, 2013.
In addition to being a youth baseball and lacrosse coach, Rich McCarthy has volunteered his time generously to numerous town committees over the years. He served on the Planning Board, the Energy Committee, the Grafton Elementary School Building Committee, the School/Municipal Space Needs Committee and most recently as the chairman of the Secondary School Building Committee. We don’t think it is possible to calculate to all the hours that Rich has put into the volunteer work he has done. We thank Rich for contributing his expertise, time and leadership unselfishly to our school district and town.
Former recipients of this award have been Mike Goulet, Lakis “Lucky” Theoharis and Charlie Bolack. Please join us in Congratulating Rich for being this year’s Partner in Education Award recipient.
