GHS social studies teacher Michael Perreault will be receiving the Unsung Heroes Award this Thursday, November 8th. The ceremony will be taking place at the Four Point Hotel in Wakefield. The award is presented by the Rotary Club.

The Rotary Club is an organization that was founded in 1905, and currently consists of over 35,000 subgroups. Their stated mission is to ‘promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, save mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies’.

Each of the clubs attending the event had been asked to nominate a person they believed was an Unsung Hero. Each awardee will be receiving a Paul Harris Recognition, which includes a certificate, as well as a pin and medallion.

“It is an honor to be considered,” said Perreault, “as they are given out to people who have demonstrated a commitment to serving the community over a long period of time.”
