MHS Sophomore Honored at Massachusetts Senate Chamber

Ariana Ferrante (sophomore) was welcomed in the Senate Chamber during the first week of October by Senator Brian A. Joyce and Representative Dan Cullinane.  She was being honored for her summer internship as a State House tour guide.  Ariana had to complete an application and interview process as well as pass a written test before being accepted as a tour guide.  The program provides high school students an outstanding opportunity to improve their knowledge and foster interests in history and government, to meet many different kinds of people as well as improve public speaking skills.  Additionally, Ariana was able to complete nearly 100 hours of community service in this capacity as well as learn to navigate the T in and out of the city by herself.  

Congratulations, Ariana!
