Hensley to be honored as Knox Trail's “Good Scout”

Westborough – Each year the Knox Trail Council Boy Scouts of America chooses someone as its "Good Scout Honoree for Westborough." This year's nominee, Lester Hensley, certainly fulfills the tenets of who the council seeks to honor – someone who has "demonstrated integrity and genuine concern for others in both their professional and personal lives." As CEO and president of EMSEAL Joint Systems Ltd., he is a second generation head of the Westborough-based business. Hensley has devoted countless hours to his community as a volunteer with youth sports, school organizations, and other community groups. He currently chairs the Westborough Planning Board and the town's Economic Development Committee.

Under pressure: Class sizes in Shrewsbury causing teacher headaches, achievement gaps

Shrewsbury - Oak Middle School English teacher Derek Pizzuto is, to put it mildly, frustrated. After a series of personnel cuts in Shrewsbury schools, there are less teachers to go around. Less teachers means a higher teacher-student ratio and less time to work individually with students. A lack of teachers also means there's no one to help students produce a yearbook or advise a photography club. And now, student achievement appears to be suffering in Shrewsbury schools. "We'se at a crisis point where teachers and administrators are doing all they can," Pizzuto said. "We'se working past the boundaries of what can be. I's seeing more and more teachers looking burnt out."
