The Community Advocate posted news that Southborough’s Barbara Jandrue “was announced as a Class of 2024 Commonwealth Heroine in honor of her dedication and hard work” in town.

The CA writes:

The Commonwealth Heroine awards are given to women who have contributed high levels of effort and dedication to their communities. Jandrue received the award for her work as the director of the Southborough Food Pantry and her various volunteer efforts.

It’s not the first time that Jandrue has been honored for her volunteerism. In 2019, Jandrue was honored by Southborough Rotary Club’s for her community service. The following year, she won the Laurie Sugarman-Whittier Wellness Award from the Youth Commission.

Jandrue is the 8th “Heroine” from Southborough honored since the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women began giving out awards in 2004. (It was previously called “Unsung Heroines” before it was renamed in 2020.)

Past recipients from our town are Bea Ginga (2019), Donna McDaniel (2013), Linda Hubley (2012), Debbie Depp-Wilson (2010), Lisa Braccio (2009), Patrice Kline (2007) and Freddy Gillespie (2006).
