Governor Charlie Baker Visits St. Mary's

St. Mary’s was in the spotlight Friday when Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and Secretary of Education James Peyser visited to tour our new STEM building and hear from students and teachers the St. Mary’s success story of in-person learning. “I thought the students were incredibly articulate,” Gov. Baker said. “What stood out to me was their willingness to do whatever it takes because they want to be in school.”

St. Mary’s special guests visited a freshman and an AP biology class, followed by a roundtable discussion in the James G. Baldini '66 Laboratories. Participating in the roundtable were: Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Polito, Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Head of School Dr. John Dolan, Secretary of Education James Peyser, Board Chair William Mosakowski and St. Mary’s students Ava Benzan '21, Madison Spencer '22, Orvis Njika '23, Joseph Goyette '24 and Ruthshell Cazeau '27.

“St. Mary’s has provided a perfectly safe learning environment,” student Joseph Goyette ’24 said during a roundtable discussion with the Gov. Baker and Cardinal O’Malley. “The past 365 days have been a learning experience. Getting to come to school every day has been such a blessing in every way possible,” said Madison Spencer ’22.
