WESTBOROUGH – On May 20 – the same day as Westborough High School’s Class of 2024 wore T-shirts of the colleges they will be attending – Project Graduation accepted a check for $1,200 from the office of Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early.

Funding for this, and other post-graduation parties in the area, comes from drug bust forfeitures.

“We’re so appreciative,” said Chair Karen Henderson.

This year’s theme will remain under wraps until Friday, May 31, when the seniors pick up their caps and gowns.

After that? Henderson will be multitasking – helping fellow volunteers transform Teamworks into party central; recording the graduation ceremony for WestboroughTV; and heading back to TeamWorks to help chaperone.

Since 1991, Project Graduation has provided a fun, safe and alcohol-free event for students graduating from Westborough High School.

More information about Project Graduation is available at the Westborough High School’s website, https://whs.westboroughk12.org/.
