Marlborough – Poorvi Mohanakrishnan, a tenth grade student at Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School, won the local Marlborough Lions Club level of the Massachusetts Lions Youth Speech Competition in December. 

She then advanced in the competition by winning the Zone 8K level on Jan. 17, which was organized by Lions Zone Chair and Marlborough Lion Mark Gibbs. Marlborough Lions Fatima Garrity, Maureen Pulice, and Laura Koester assisted with the online Zone competition as well. She then qualified for the Region level competition held Jan. 30.
