Green is the color of choice for many in Southborough today. Trottier Middle School students started the movement to wear green in honor of their 12-year-old classmate Eric Green who passed away suddenly this week. Parents, along with students at neighboring schools – including Algonquin where Eric’s two siblings attend – have followed suit.
By all accounts Eric was a popular seventh-grader at Trottier who loved lacrosse and played trumpet in the school’s elite Big Band. Trottier Principal Keith Lavoie credited Eric’s dedication to school and community. Friends called him an “inspiration.”
