DATELINE:  MARSHFIELD, MA…

                                                       

Mary, a recent graduate of Marshfield High School, volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield for four years before becoming a Staff Member.   In countless ways, she has made a difference in the lives of members and at the club itself.

 

Over the years, Mary has worn many hats, from Program Assistant to the Treasurer of the Keystone Club, where she planned and implemented club activities.  Mary also served as a tutor in the Power Hour program and as a mentor in the Go Girl Go program.  

                                                                                                            

Although her commitment to the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield kept her busy, Mary was very involved in school activities as well.  A member of the National Honor Society, Mary served as captain of the Varsity Swim Team and as Vice President of the High School Key Club.  In her spare time, she worked as a swim instructor. 

 

Mary is now a freshman at Bridgewater State College studying for a degree in elementary education with a minor in social work.

                   

“The Boys and Girls Club youth have truly benefited from Mary’s influence.  She has amazing character and real leadership ability.  We’re delighted to honor Mary as our ‘Youth of the Year’ and we wish her every success in the future,” noted Greg Jackson, the club’s Executive Director.
