School Supt Awards Finn with Certificate for Academic Excellence

During Monday night’s School Committee meeting, Superintendent Lisa Howard presented the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendent’s Certificate of Academic Excellence, to Christopher Finn.

“As I thought about who was deserving of this citation, I needed to take a moment to think about what academic excellence meant, and the more I thought about the meaning, the more I thought of excellence as a journey of how you get from where you were to where you are today,” said Howard. “I decided to choose a student who exhibited internal motivation, strong leadership skills, and someone who is giving, humble, patient and honest, and Chris Finn is the epitome of all of those things.”

As a senior at Winthrop High School, Finn is a member of the National Honor Society, on the yearbook committee, a mentor in the Life Skills class, a volunteer for Relay for Life and Walk for Hunger, a student council member, and captain of both the varsity hockey and tennis teams.
