Shawsheen Superintendent, Charlie Lyons, welcomed students, parents, teachers, and other guests to the opening of the new health and life science wing at Shawsheen Tech. The facility was impressive and adds to the opportunities at Shawsheen for Burlington students. Charlie was recognized for his vision of creating an educational space that reflects present and future needs in the Massachusetts economy.
In Charlie’s words: “The state-of-the-art addition was made possible by an investment of $4.5 million with 56% state funded, and it reflects our district’s continued commitment to ensure students are trained for jobs that have excellent employment opportunities in the 21st century economy.”
Charlie’s heartfelt comments focused on the students and teachers who will bring the facility to life. We are lucky to have two high quality high schools available for Burlington students.
