Longtime teacher reflects on Westborough’s past

Westborough – For those of us living in Westborough in 2017, life is busy. It is hard to imagine that this town was once something other than the hurricane of activity that roars through the rotary each day, leaving us with the suspicion that time is cleverly finding a way to sneak by faster and faster. I often think about, maybe even wish for, the life I see in my grandparents grainy black and white high school pictures. My grandparents’ Westborough of the 1950s was far from perfect, especially for those cast to the fringes of society for any number of reasons. Despite this reality, have we jumped too far ahead of ourselves? Aren’t some of us stuck in a perpetual passing lane and running desperately low on fuel? Maybe, we have lost some common shared values that were, in part, responsible for the quality of life many of us live today. To get some perspective, I searched for someone who has made a life in this town and invested energy into this community’s progress. It didn’t take long for my search to land on Charlotte Spinney, or Ms. Spinney, as she was known for the 41 years she taught at Westborough High School.
