A Plethora of Winter Season All Stars

I am solidly in favor of a new high school in Saugus. The current building is over 50 years old and in very bad shape. If you follow the messages of the School Committee, the selectmen, and the town manager, they all favor a new building. The students and young families deserve better than the current school. We have great teachers and administration, but the building detracts from their capabilities to provide the very best education for their students.alt

The Winter Sports All Stars for the North Shore were named this week. Joe Bertrand was chosen Outstanding Player of the Year for his basketball expertise. Joe averaged 26 points, 14 rebounds and five assists this past season, accumulating 1,141 points during his career at SHS. Along with his other achievements, Joe is a National Honor Society Student.
