The Lamplighter wants to congratulations all 56 Whittier Tech students who competed in the recent SkillsUSA State Competition, especially the school’s eight medalists. Silver medals went to: Natasha Williams for Cosmetology; Colleen McCabe for Culinary Techspo; Sabrina Bussey, Courtney Torrissi and Emily Mazza for Career Pathways Showcase. Earning bronze medals were: Chelsea Vaillancourt for Culinary Techspo, Alexander Barkas for Technical Computer Applications and Erika Caires for Photography. Great job to all!
Local folks have found an easy and effective way to raise money for worthy causes. It’s called “Go Fund Me,” and Team Haverhill is using it to raise money for the Portland Street Playground project. As of Monday they’d raised almost $900 from 16 donors. If you’d like to help the city and Team Haverhill in their efforts to rebuild this inner-city playground, visit online at www.gofundme.com/PortlandStreetPlayground. Contributions will help Team Haverhill “match” the city’s $25,000 investment (CDBG funds) toward a complete renovation of the playground. This playground and basketball court serves the Lower Acre, one of the city’s least-advantaged neighborhoods.
Quite an achievement
