Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito visit MHS
|On Thursday, March 8, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito visited Marlborough High School to learn more about our STEM Early College High School. Polito and J.D. Chesloff, of the Governor’s STEM Executive Committee, met first with administrators, key STEM staff and elected officials to learn more about the program’s foundation and operation, then toured some STEM classrooms to talk with students and teachers. They wrapped up their visit with a recognition of the district’s recent District of Distinction award.
“I will say that in many parts of the Commonwealth, what’s happening here in Marlborough doesn’t exist yet,” said Polito to a theater packed with students, faculty and staff, administrators, city and state elected officials, and STEM partners. “So, you’re in a very special and good place. We want to thank you for making this possible. We want to thank the students for making the decision to be a part of this – we need you! We need you to succeed, we need you to have the right skills because when you graduate with the right skills, whether it’s from this high school and you go directly into employment or you go on to college, you are part of a workforce that will continue to allow Massachusetts to hold that title of the most innovative state.”
Below are some photos of Lt. Gov. Polito’s visit.
