Malden students among UW-Madison winter graduates

An estimated 1,073 students at all levels (bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral and professional) participated in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s winter commencement ceremony, which was held on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, at the Kohl Center. Among them was Malden student George Spracklin, of the College of Agriculture & Life Science – Doctor of Philosophy, Genetics.

Capt. James A. Lovell, Jr., one of only 24 people to go to the moon and back, delivered the commencement address. Lovell attended UW-Madison for two years, participating in the university’s Naval Reserve Officers’ Training Corps before he was accepted to the U.S. Naval Academy, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 1952.

Steve Winslow announces candidacy for Councillor-at-Large


~ Political Announcement ~

Bike to the Sea Co-Founder, former School Committee Member, and community development expert pledges to work with residents to move Malden forward

Today I announce my candidacy for Malden City Councillor-at-Large. I want to be a progressive, community‐focused voice on the Council and hope to earn your vote in November.

Maldonians probably know me best as co-founder of Bike to the Sea, the Malden nonprofit that has worked since 1993 to make the Northern Strand Community Trail and Bikeway Community Garden a reality. In my professional capacity as a manager of community development projects for more than 20 years, I have run large and small projects from start to finish. From articulating a vision to planning, gathering financial and material resources, navigating legal requirements, budgeting, and executing on the ground, I know exactly what it takes to make things happen. And as someone who cares deeply about the city that has been my home for 28 years, I want to use my experience and skills to move Malden forward. Smart development will be one key focus of my work – including affordable housing, effective public transportation, and a safe environment for people who drive, bike, or walk.

As a product of public schools, as well as a parent and grandparent, I know that public education is a critically important part of our City and our democracy. Having served on the Malden School Committee from 2007 to 2013, I am fully aware of the practical challenges our schools face. I will continue to work hard for equitable funding, smaller class sizes, strong leadership, and the best education we can provide for every one of our children.

Over the past several years, I have been proud to work with Preserve Malden to ensure that Malden has funds to protect its historic treasures, improve parks, and provide affordable housing. As Councillor‐at‐Large, I will seek to engage the entire community in making sure we spend these funds on projects of maximum benefit to residents today and tomorrow.

My experience – as an attorney, community development project manager, and School Committee member – has given me a profound appreciation for what we can accomplish when we work together. Malden’s diverse mix of residents enriches our City, generating enormous potential for creative ideas and innovative solutions. I plan to tap this potential in ways that benefit everyone. I will be a champion for every Malden resident and neighborhood, and will ensure that residents have a strong voice in key decision‐making processes. Government at every level has an important role to play in enriching our lives. At a time when divisive politics and policies are generating fear and worry, I pledge to be a progressive Councillor‐at‐Large who partners effectively with colleagues, community groups, and residents to address concerns and set Malden on the right path.

I hope I can earn your vote and become your voice on the City Council. I look forward to meeting you in the coming months, hearing your thoughts, and sharing my ideas for how we can keep Malden moving forward together. To learn more about my candidacy, please visit my Facebook page, Winslow for Malden.

Mystic Valley girls named CAC baksetball All-Stars


Two members of Mystic Valley Regional Charter School’s girls’ basketball team were recently named Commonwealth Athletic Conference (CAC) All Stars. Sophomore Talia Mamayek of Melrose and junior Menel Lamadzema of Everett were honored at Greater Lawrence Tech for their seasons – which coincided with setting a new program record for wins with 18. In addition, Lamadzema was named the CAC’s Most Valuable Player.

Mamayek was the team’s second-leading scorer this past year, scoring 9.5 points per game. She led the Lady Eagles with almost 11 rebounds a game and was the team’s best defender, according to Head Coach Jason Cantwell, who added, “Talia’s ability to play bigger than her height was one of the main reasons for our success this past season. Talia is a coach’s dream; she comes to practice ready to work and improve each and every day. I was proud to see her hard work pay off this season as she was nominated by all coaches in the league as a consensus first team All-Star. That’s as big a compliment as any player can get.”

Lamadzema earned her fourth consecutive All Star award and her first MVP trophy. Lamadzema, who had become the school’s all-time leading scorer at 1,516 career points in the final game of the season, could become the first five-time CAC Basketball All Star in school history. Averaging a school-record 25 points per game this past season, she also set a school record with 43 points scored against Lowell Catholic in January. Coach Cantwell added, “Having a player as gifted as Menel is a pleasure. She works as hard as anyone to improve, and I was proud when the coaches in the league voted her MVP. I look forward to working with her going forward [as] she begins to prep for her senior year and basketball at the collegiate level. She has a realistic shot at 2,000 points, which would be an incredible feat.”
