Boston Scientific & Natick High School Partnership

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description On Friday, June 13, 2003, at Natick High School, MA Environmental Affairs Assistant Secretary Gina McCarthy, Director of the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance Paul Richard, and Natick School Superintendent Jim Connolly recognized The Boston Scientific Corporation for its participation in the Massachusetts Mentoring Program for School Environmental Safety and Health. The Massachusetts Mentoring Program for School Environmental Safety and Health brings industry expertise into local schools to create safer learning environments for students.

Boston Scientific has worked with members of Natick High School’s Science Department to train teachers in the safe handling of chemicals in classrooms, preparation rooms, and chemicals storage areas. Boston Scientific and Natick High School continue to work together to develop further safety initiatives.

The Mentoring Program has received requests to participate in the program from the following 13 public high schools: Amherst-Pelham, Attleboro, Chicopee, Dedham, Haverill, Lee, Longmeadow, Natick, Narragansett Regional, Oakmont Regional, Quincy, Revere, Springfield, and Wayland. Nine of these communities have been matched with business mentors.
