At an awards ceremony on Tuesday evening, the The Northborough/Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council recognized 93 local residents for the impact they have had on the lives of children with special needs. Among the community members recognized with Go the Distance awards, are many who live and work in Southborough. You can see the full list of NSPAC award recipients here.
One such award recipient was Algonquin senior and Southborough resident Emma Decker. Emma spends much of her free time volunteering at Finn School assisting special needs students. She apparently had quite an impact, and was nominated for the award by one of the kindergarten students she worked with there.
When she’s not volunteering at Finn, Emma is the goalie of the almost undefeated Algonquin girls lacrosse team, and rumor has it, she maintains straight A’s. Mom Suzy, Dad Steve, and Emma’s brother and sister are rightly proud of all she has accomplished and contributed to her community.
Please join me in congratulating Emma, along with all the other award recipients, for the difference they have made.
