Northborough – The Northborough Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council (NSPAC) recently hosted its sixth annual “Go the Distance” awards ceremony May 24 in the Algonquin Regional High School cafeteria. The event, which attracted approximately 200 guests, celebrated special educators and members of the community who have made a difference in the lives of special needs students in the district.
Twelve-year-old Robert E. Melican Middle School student Andrew Roberts was the master of ceremonies for the evening and he thanked all of the nominees, mentioning that he had worked with several of them over the years. Special education students had huge smiles on their faces as they passed out awards to their teachers, buddies and special helpers.
Algonquin students Christina Iverson (violinist) and Olivia Iverson (flutist) provided musical entertainment as the guests arrived and Northborough Challenger League buddies helped with set-up and ran kids’ activity tables. Guests were treated to cupcakes baked by Algonquin culinary arts students and food donated by Lowe’s Variety and Meat Market, Lil M’s Mart, and Wegmans. Staples, Avidia Bank and Tatnuck Bookseller were also sponsors of the event.
