  Superintendent David DiBarri announced that Northeast Metro Tech’s Student Athlete Leadership and Mentoring Program (SALM) recently helped prepare and distribute food at the Revere Food Pantry. On Wednesday, April 12, a dozen student athletes from Northeast Metro Tech, along with Teacher Sarah Pierce, visited the food pantry to help prepare, bag and distribute food for those in need.

  SALM includes team captains and leaders who learn about leadership, accountability, commitment, discipline and empathy while participating in a leadership council and community service opportunities. The goal of the program is to teach student athletes to make an impact over the course of decades, and not just during their four years at Northeast Metro Tech.

  The students who contributed at the Food Pantry are Gianna Scoppettuolo, Soffia Giraldo, Mike Sousa, Alex Moneretto, Aidan Jones, Mikey Follis, Cam Correa, Emelly Acevedo, Sam Cubas, Briana Boccelli, Marisa Boccelli and Ethan Crespo. SALM planned to send another team of students to help the Food Pantry, and other shops might soon join the efforts.

  “Our student athletes were so excited and proud to participate in this program, and we’ve now had more student athletes, as well as several shops, ask about the possibility of helping out more in the future as well,” said Athletic Director Donald Heres. “I am proud of these students for being so eager to help their fellow community members.”

  “Teaching our students to be upstanding citizens who contribute to the communities around them is a major part of our efforts here at Northeast Metro Tech, and I applaud these student athletes for their hard and meaningful work,” said Superintendent DiBarri.
