Congratulations to Senior, Ben McEvoy, who was named one of six Distinguished Finalists in the state of Massachusetts for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award.  As a result of his dedication and service hours, Ben has also qualified as a recipient of the President's Volunteer Service Award. This is a great honor for Ben and for GDRHS.

Below is the write-up that will be shared with local media.

Benjamin McAvoy, 18, of Dunstable, MA., a senior at Groton-Dunstable Regional High School, started a foundation that's working with sports and arts programs at his school to involve interested students with disabilities.  Inspired by a friend with autism who liked hockey, Benjamin, who had been an active participant in other inclusion programs at school, worked with his principal, guidance counselor, coaches and parents on details ranging from mentor-pairing to making sure that every student had a ride home.
