Recommended by State Representative Jeffrey Rosario Turco

Joanne spent over three decades teaching in Revere Public Schools, sharing her passion for the arts with thousands of students and starting Revere High School’s first clothing bank. For the last seven years, a time of transformational commercial development and population growth in Revere, Joanne has served stead-fastly on the Revere City Council, as Vice President and as the representative of Ward One. Last year, the Mayor Brian Arrigo selected her to serve as the Chairwoman of Revere’s newly established Public Arts Commission, deeming her the optimal choice for developing Revere into a vibrant arts community. Having someone like Joanne McKenna who is deeply connected to Revere’s past, present and future, and who leads with a steady, consistent and inclusive hand, is indispensable to the City’s ongoing transformation. Revere is lucky to have Joanne and she is more than deserving of this honor.
