Mayor Carlo DeMaria, Jr. recently joined the Saugus-Everett Lodge of Elks at their Annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner. The Mayor joined many members of the Everett community at the #642 Lodge in Saugus to honor Superintendent Fred Foresteire as the Educator of the Year. The event was well attended by state and local officials, residents, and members of the Everett School Committee in an effort to recognize the hard work and dedication displayed by Superintendent Foresteire.
As a graduate of Everett High School, Superintendent Foresteire reflected on the progress Everett has made educating their students and the success their students demonstrate each year. Many in attendance spoke to Superintendent Foresteire’s dedication, passion and success, all which make him an admirable role model to lead the youth of our City and deserving recipient for the Educator of the Year.
In addition to Mr. Foresteire, speakers at the dinner included Mayor Carlo DeMaria, State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Treasurer Steve Grossman, State Representative Donald Wong, Exalted Ruler Jim McGahey, and Trustee Steve Doherty.
Mayor DeMaria rose and spoke about the dedication and hard work Superintendent Foresteire has continuously exhibited throughout the years, and how his dedication has helped to put Everett’s school system on the map. The Mayor expanded on the fact that statistics and numbers each year illustrate that the Everett School System is amongst the top in the state of Massachusetts.
“Our schools, students, teachers and administration are excellent examples for other schools across the state to look up to,” stated Mayor DeMaria, “Year after year our students make us proud and that is do to the hard work of the teachers, administration and Superintendent Foresteire. Everett schools are truly Everett’s pride!”
