Mayor extends thanks for an enjoyable, successful 65th Annual Donald A. DeLuca Student Government Day

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to ensure the 65th Annual Donald A. DeLuca Student Government Day was enjoyable and successful for all those who participated.

We are grateful for the Woburn Rotary Club, whose members continued their generous, annual support by hosting a luncheon for students at the Crest View Plaza.  Special thanks to Bill Sullivan, President and longtime member Art Duffy for making arrangements for this year’s guest speaker Middlesex County Sherriff Peter J. Koutoujian.

We also offer very special thanks to WMHS English teacher Abby Gillis for again coordinating a challenging and meaningful essay portion of the program. Congratulations to WMHS students who stepped up to the challenge by producing some impressive essays and working hard during the two-day program.

Thanks also City Clerk William Campbell and Marie Lingblom for their commitment in making the day meaningful for everyone. Thanks again to John Devine, owner of North Suburban Transportation, for providing bus transportation for students.

Thanks also to Superintendent Matt Crowley, WMHS Principal Jessica Callanan; City Council President Richard Haggerty and City Councilors Mike Anderson, Joanne Campbell, Mark Gaffney, Lindsay Higgins, Edward Tedesco; School Committee Chair Joseph Demers, School Committee member Michael Mulrenan.  Thanks also to Superintendent Matt Crowley and WMHS Principal Jessica Callanan.

As always, thanks to Richard Jaime for his support in helping to pull everything together on time and in great shape.  And, we remain appreciative of Arlene Friel and Janet Fahey for their continued support of the program their father, Donald DeLuca, conceived and launched 65 years ago this year.

Thanks again to everyone who helped ensure the success of this fine Woburn tradition.
