The following was written by Mr. Jeff Duffany, 8th grade advisor and history teacher:
"On Saturday, January 14, STEM Academy 8th grader Jack Burgess attended the Project 351 launch day in Boston. Project 351 is a state-wide service organization that honors one 8th grade student from each city and town in Massachusetts. Saturday's launch day took Jack to Faneuil Hall for a kick off event with Governor Charlie Baker, service at a local middle school, and the Kennedy Library. Jack was selected for Project 351 for his ethic of service, humility, compassion, and kindness. As part of this project, Jack will serve for one year as an ambassador from Sandwich. He will run a clothing drive in the spring and will be given leadership training at a reunion event in May."
Congratulations Jack for your accomplishments and dedication to helping others.
