Here’s what a few of our teachers have to say……..
“Many of my students bring the newspapers home to families to encourage the adults in their families to stay abreast of current events.”
- Lauren Walsh, Linden school
“I feel confident that all Athol High School sophomores are becoming more informed citizens in our community because of the Boston Herald in Education program.”
- Kathy Horrigan, Athol High school
“With your help we have reached so many students who would never have a chance to read the paper.”
– Rob Bayley, Leominster High School.
“Bringing the world to our students through the newspaper is so very important. It broadens their horizons from the safety of the classroom.”
- Linda Swallow, Qualters Middle School
“I just wanted to express my gratitude for your wonderful educational programs. I have used the materials both with my middle school and high school students, and I have found the materials to be well developed and extremely helpful. The Herald should receive a commendation for the work that it does in supporting educational initiatives. Keep up the good work!”
- Mary Mahoney, Wilmington High School
