Berwick Project Graduate

Each year Berwick High parents get together to coordinate the Project Graduation program for their graduating seniors. “This is a great way to keep our seniors safe on a very important day, yes it’s a struggle but a struggle worth every minute,” according to one of the coordinators, Paige Roussel. “Too many times we hear about tragic stories of children being hurt or their young lives being cut short by a tragic accident during our prom season and at graduation. This is an important program I’m striving to keep ongoing.” Making an annual contribution to Berwick High, from left, is Frances Dupre, human resources and marketing officer at M C Bank; Brice Benedietto, student; Tim Shelby, senior; and Roussel, chairman of the Berwick High School Parent Project Graduation.
