My grandfather has always said that do what you love, and if you're good at it, you'll just happen to get paid. That was his advice for pursuing things in the professional world. He is the epitome of that phrase: at 83, he still gets up every day and heads to a local brokerage firm in downtown Worcester where he works with two of his grandchildren. This summer was my version of that philosophy. There was no dread or negative involved in my summer employment. I was working outside on the water providing inner city kids with opportunities that they had never had. You can not put a price tag on such an experience-- one that I am proud to have in my rear-view mirror as I begin my sophomore year in college. I applaud SHSB and the people who collectively make it possible.
Thanks for a great summer!
