t won’t be a surprise to most of Rachel May’s classmates and teachers that she would be addressing Saugus High School’s 146th commencement exercises tonight as the Valedictorian speaker – the honor given to the topranked student. May erased any doubts among those attending Wednesday’s Scholarships and Academic/Ser-

vice Awards Night when she walked up to the stage in the high school auditorium to receive the first three awards that were presented for her academic excellence in courses offered by three different departments. She received the Science Department’s Excellence in Science Award, the Social Studies Department’s Good Wood Excellence in History Award and the Math Department’s May

Kelly’s Excellence in Mathematics Award. The expected encore was getting named as Valedictorian speaker. It was a very clearcut decision, as Saugus High Principal Michael Hashem told the audience that May received “straight A’s” over her years as a Sachem and that the lowest grade she got in any class was a 94. “That 94 really jumped out at

GLAD TO BE BACK: Joseph Attubato, believed to be the longest serving Town Meeting member, said he hasn’t missed many sessions since getting elected to his Precinct 6 position in 1978. Attubato, who had missed the previous sessions of the year’s Annual Town Meeting because of illness, was happy to take part in the final session this week and the Special Town Meeting, where he and other members voted overwhelmingly in support of articles for the construction of a new Saugus High School-Middle School and improvements at the Veterans Memorial Elementary School and the Belmonte Middle School.

here was some spirited debate. But the votes at Tuesday night’s Special Town Meeting to support two big money warrant articles for a new $160.7 million Saugus High School-Middle School and another $25.4 million in improvements for Saugus Veterans Memorial Elementary School and the Belmonte Middle School weren’t even close. They were landslide decisions – 44-2 for the new school building and 43-2 on the article to rehab and make the Saugus Veterans Memorial Elementary School and the

It’s our obligation as residents of the town and officials of the town to demand change,” Crabtree said.

But he disagreed with the building plans for the current high school site and predicted it would create traffic problems while “violating the spirit of the Route One Overlay district” passed by the Town Meeting two years ago. Traffic congestion would be compounded, Brown predicted. He also suggested

that closing several schools and reducing school building to three would disrupt parts of town that benefit from the neighborhood schools that would be closed. Brown also criticized the proposal for “opening at capacity” instead of designing it to accommodate increased enrollments. “The problem is this creates other problems,” Brown said. “Our children and grandchildren will be paying for this school … I think we’ll be overpaying for it. … I just don’t understand paying for a school this size crammed into an area … We should all use caution,” he said Decareau said his issue isn’t with the new high school – but with “the major complex” that is being proposed. “We’re building hotels, apartments and condos and we don’t have a west side fire station. That’s public safety. We’re going to have to address that,” he said of the need to build a third fire station to protect the major building investments made on the west side of town. “It’s not going to affect me 34 years from now when I’m still here talking – but you never can tell,” Decareau quipped. “I think we’re biting too much of the apple at this time.

Precinct 9 Town Meeting Member Jonathan McTague – a 2014 Saugus High School graduate – made a personal declaration based on recent knowledge of conditions at Saugus High. “I know exactly what the school needs – and it’s a brand-new school,” McTague said, noting recent history he lived through – with leaking roofs, missing tiles and other conditions that detract from a conducive learning experience. “We as a community need this – not just the youth,” he said. Saugus School Committee Vice Chairman Peter Manoogian – a former selectman and ex-Town Meeting member who served the body for many years, said the high school had long outlived its life. He referred to ramps that couldn’t be made handicapped accessible and a roof that exceeded its life many years ago. Manoogian questioned the wisdom of critics

of the project. Public education in Saugus needs a major overhaul, according to Manoogian. “Yes, Plato educated his students along the river,” Manoogian said, referring to the great Greek philosopher of ancient times. “But, we can’t do that anymore in the 21st Century,” he said. Board of Selectmen Chairman Debra Panetta said the town needs to embrace the project because of the potential for reimbursement by the MSBA for up to 57 to 58 percent. “That’s money that

residents and the business community won’t have to pay,” Panetta said. “Now it’s time to look to the future. … How do we want to invest in our children?” School Committee Chairman Jeannie Meredith, who also chairs the High School Project Building Committee, called the project “long overdue.” “The children of Saugus deserve to have what children of surrounding communities have … The children are the future and we must make the investment,” Meredith said.

among academic accomplishments. “I really think it’s something special … To not get below a 94 – that just doesn’t happen by chance,” Sullivan said in an interview. If there were a surprise, it would have to be that May’s best friend, Kristina Italiano, will be sharing the spotlight at tonight’s graduation – at 6 p.m. at Stackpole Field – as the Salutatorian speaker, for the second highest academic score in the class. She had to overtake her twin sister, Katelyn Italiano, for that spot. Katelyn received one of the graduation marshal spots for finishing fourth, the ranking that her sister had going into the year. Molly Shutt will be the other graduation marshal for finishing third in the class. More than 50 students – 41 of them members of the National Honor Society – received close to $150,000 in scholarships at Wednesday’s awards night ceremony. “This is a great class,” Hashem said of the 192 seniors who will be receiving diplomas tonight. “With 192, this is a big class, too. The last five classes have been around 160,” Hashem said. There were 163 graduates in last year’s class, with 70 percent of them going on to fouryear colleges and universities – slightly better than the 68.5 percent of the students who

proved her academic ranking in the 2017 class by moving from fourth to the second highest academic spot, which was held previously by her twin sister, Katelyn. Some highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: What’s the most valuable experience you received as a student of Saugus High School? Italiano: One of the best experiences is Color Day. It’s a really huge thing. It doesn’t really go along with academics, but being able to balance all of our classes with all of the responsibilities that we both had during Color Day was just great. Q: So, this is something you will remember when you look back 10 years from now? Italiano: Yeah, Color Day is probably the biggest thing. May: And just overall, one really cool thing when I look back, of everyone I know, Kristy is my best friend and we’ve done this whole thing together. It’s really cool that we ended up One and Two. It’s been a valuable experience that a lot of schools – like the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian are really competitive. But the last four years, I could not have gotten here without Kristy. All the nights that we either stayed up together studying or doing papers and projects – even just in the morning – having somebody else there to do your homework with and support you the whole way when you’re struggling. Q: So, both of you knew that one or the other was going to get Sal [Salutatorian] and the other was going to get Val [Valedictorian]? Italiano: At the beginning of the year, I was Four. Then I

Italiano: Yes. Q: So, you and Rachel … you’re best friends? May: Since like seventh grade. Yes. It’s been exciting. Q: Okay. What is your proudest accomplishment, Rachel, as you look back on your four years at Saugus High? May: The most obvious thing is Valedictorian. And like what Mr. Hashem [Saugus High School Principal Michael Hashem] was talking about – the fact I got straight A’s – even Middle School. Like with everything, I never gotten a B in. There have been a lot of times that I came really close. But there was just a lot of studying. And I know I put a lot of hard work into it, so it’s something tangible I can say I accomplished. Q: You got straight A’s through your entire time in Saugus High? You never got any B’s? May: Yes. I’ve gotten B’s on tests. But for a grade for the whole year, I have never gotten a B grade. Q: Just since Middle School or throughout Saugus Public Schools. May: Not ever. Q: Like from the first grade on? May: Yes. First grade on.

science. Taking both of those classes, I realized how interested I was in those subjects. And that kind of led to figure out what I want my major to be. So, the teachers here have helped me figure out what I like, and just having the opportunity to take such great

classes at Saugus High – I never felt like Saugus High limited me in anything I wanted to do. I always felt that Saugus High gave me the same opportunities and got me to the same point that I’d have anywhere.

Q: You got straight A’s right from the beginning. Wow! Q: Kristy? Italiano: For my biggest accomplishment, I would probably say is being able to balance everything I’ve done. I got the NEC student athlete award a couple of weeks ago. And for me, that was just like an acknowledgement of everything I’ve done – all the sports I’ve played and captainships and stuff like that. And obviously Salutatorian. I’m wicked excited about that. Q: What’s your career objective and how have four years at Saugus High School prepared you for that challenge?

May: I’m going to be studying Biology and Neuroscience at the University of South Carolina. My end goal with that is I want to go into research for Neuroscience, which is all about the brain, like diseases with the brain. I want to go into research for that, either as a professor at a university or working with a medical company. And Saugus High definitely brought me to that because I took Anatomy and Physiology with Ms. Hashem and Psychology with Ms. Alongi. And those were two of my favorite classes, and Anatomy and Psychology are two things that make up Neuro-

ASKS | from page 7 Q: So, you want to do research on the brain? May: Yes. Like research with Alzheimer’s and all different diseases that affect the brain. Q: Sounds exciting. Kristy? Italiano: I’m not sure how to follow that up? Because, I’d feel like I would be repeating what’s been said. I’m going to Boston College to study Nursing. And a big part of that was definitely Anatomy and Physiology. Studying the body was so interesting to me. Seeing the people here, like the cancer patients, and what they have gone through – I want to be able to be like that nurse who is able to help them through their struggles. Like the kids here. Be able to connect to them and really help them. Q: So, you want to get into nursing? Italiano: Yes. Q: And how has Saugus High helped you? Italiano: The classes of Anatomy and Psychology have definitely shown me how cool the human body is and that I could study more of it, and it’s made me believe I can help in the real world. Q: How should the Saugus High School Class of 2 017 be

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 2, 2017 remembered? What should be their legacy? Italiano: Our slogan this year was “start unknown and “finish unforgettable.” And that was a big thing. I think we did that – especially this year – like most of our sports teams going to the state tournaments, which I think hasn’t happened in a while. I think only three teams didn’t make it. And it’s still a huge accomplishment May: I t ’s not even just sports. It’s overall. The drama club made it to the finals for the first time in 10 years. Even just Color Day – our class beat the senior class last year. Every facet of different clubs and organizations have been so successful with us as leaders and seniors. Italiano: One of the coolest things this year was going to the state tournaments with the basketball and hockey teams. Everyone dresses up and gets so excited. Our class has just led the way in that. We’ve watched the classes before us do that and we said we’re going to do it better and we made it bigger. There was so much fun this year. We definitely had the best fan section of any other team that we faced. That shows Sachem pride and how much we love this school.

May: Even with the students – the connections we have made with the class, with so many members of the faculty. It’s something that I think they won’t forget for a while. Yeah. We’re unforgettable. And even just as a class, I think we’re all friends together. Like we all have our friends that we hang out with all of the time. But there are 50 to 60 other people in this class that I consider my friends – that I don’t hang out with all the time, but I know I could always talk to. I feel like we are really a close class. Q: What’s your biggest concern as you graduate? May: One thing is definitely with Saugus High: that our class is a really big class, but a lot of them are dwindling down. I can definitely see that grades below us are going to private schools and to Charter Schools. They don’t believe that Saugus High can give them all of these great opportunities, which is completely false, because I’ve had so much success at Saugus High. It’s free and there is some great opportunity. In the past, there are Saugus High graduates who have gone on to Harvard and MIT and some other great schools and the places we’re going. And it’s an accomplishment. I feel

like they need to take advantage of this school. Hopefully, we’ll be getting a new school, which is definitely necessary. And the spirit at Saugus High is so great. Sometimes we joke around about how bad the building is and criticize. But, at the end of the day, we all love it and say we’re going to miss it here. And I feel bad that there are Elementary Schoolers and Middles Schoolers who are going to completely write it [Saugus High] off as something they don’t want to be a part of, but it’s something that has changed me so much as an individual. Q: Kristy. Is that your biggest concern, too? Italiano: Yes. Definitely. I would say people not coming to the school. They are missing out on so much opportunity they can take advantage of Q: What’s your advice for next year’s freshman class? May: Oh, I’m trying to think of something I can say without sounding completely cliché. Italiano: I’m going to be cliché – take advantage of all the opportunities that they give you, or you’ll be missing out on so much. I got involved in so many things early. Do it.

to great things. Or one day, you’ll wind up walking on the stage and you will miss all of it and wish you started earlier. May: And definitely, keep your mind open to things because there’s a lot of people that I have met this year and recently that I would never have thought I’d be friends with that I am. And they have become very important people in my life. There’s teachers that I’ve heard things about, like that their class is going to be terrible. And you get to the class and they’re actually a great person and they’re a great teacher and you learn so much. And you think about Saugus High and you say, ‘I don’t want to go there. The building is so old.’ But you need to keep an open mind about everything because you never know how something is until you actually experience it, and I would say to freshmen, “Just keep that mind-set open and you will never know what opportunities open up.” If you are willing to try different things – or you’ll never know what you might have missed out on, and it might be something that you really love doing. Q: Anything else you want to share? Italiano: Go, Class 2017! That’s about it.

Saugus student graduates from Boston College High School

Town Meeting complete! By Mark E. Vogler


here could be a few more Special Town Meetings to take care of business of matters that crop up – like cuts in state or federal revenue to Massachusetts cities and towns. But in what is believed to be the earliest completion of the Annual Town Meeting in recent memory, Town Meeting members wrapped things up on Tuesday night by approving a handful of warrant articles -- including the budget for the 2018 fiscal year, which begins July 1. “This is a record,” long-time Town Meeting member Albert J. DiNardo of Precinct 4 said during a break between Tuesday’s Special Town Meeting and the last session of the Annual Town Meeting. “I don’t believe it’s ever been done in May, at least in a long time,” said DiNardo, who has served Town Meeting for nearly three decades. “Usually, we go to June or later. With the town moderator, we’re moving this along,” he said. Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree said he agrees with DiNardo that this could be historic as Annual Town Meetings go. “This is certainly the earliest I can recall,” said Crabtree, who served the town as se-

lectmen several years ago, before he landed the town manager’s job. Precinct 8 Town Meeting member Stephen Horlick, who also serves on the Finance Committee, credited the manager with developed a mindset to take care of business in a timely fashion. “We’re always done by June at the latest while Crabtree has been town manager,” Horlick said. Of course, not everybody was happy with the early end

to this year’s Annual Town Meeting. If School Committee members had their druthers, they would have preferred to see it come in a month or two late -providing the School Department received some additional funds. Veteran School Committee member Arthur Grabowski addressed Town Meeting members on the budget. Grabowsk i likened the

TA K I N G C A R E O F B U S I NESS: Many veteran Town Meeting members credited Town Moderator Stephen N. Doherty with keeping members on task this year as the 50-member completed the warrant of this year’s Annual Town Meeting Tuesday night – by the end of May – the quickest in recent memory

compared to the amount approved by the Town Meeting, Grabowski said he hoped to see “a commitment” from Town Meeting members and the Finance Committee “when the new schools are built” so that the School Department can afford to proceed with the district-wide education plan adopted by the town.

Civic-minded children Grade school students take to the streets to help win votes for new Saugus High School-Middle School building as June 20 Special Election day nears By Mark E. Vogler


hree students from Veterans Memorial Elementary School could have been enjoying the nice spring weather playing with their friends on Tuesday night. Or they could have been doing their homework after returning to classes from a long Memorial Day weekend. Instead, they hung out with a group of grownups on the sidewalk along Central Street, in front of Saugus Town Hall, wav-

ing campaign signs at traffic passing through the rotary, urging potential voters to “Vote Yes for a new Saugus High SchoolMiddle School.” When asked why they were doing it, they all shared a view of conditions of the current Saugus High School that they have seen firsthand. “This High School is terrible and we need air-conditioning there,” said Carley Marchand, 9, a fourth grader at the Veterans School. She recalled suffering through stifling conditions during a youth event at the high

tary School (pre-K through Middle School (which will be school. “We’ll have better roofs,” her grade 2) and the Belmonte grades 3-5). brother, Cameron Marchand, 7, said. The first grader remembers being in the High School gym one day when water began to drip from the ceiling. Over 200 appliances in stock! Jake D’Eon, 10, a fourth grader, gave a detailed explanation as to why he supports the slogan on his sign. “I got five reasons,” said Jake, the son of Saugus Selectman Jennifer D’Eon. “Better AC. No leaks in the roof. Easier to get all of the kids to school. A bigger learning space. And a chance to have a better education,”he said. Selectman D’Eon stood a few feet away, talking to School Committee Chair Jeannie Meredith, who also chairs the High School Building Project Com8 Norwood St. mittee. “They’re six generation SaugoEverett nians,” Bill Marchand said of his (617) 387-9810 two children, whom he had enKitchen Hours: couraged to do their civic duty.“I Mon-Thurs: 12-10pm support the school 100 percent.

Saugus baseball team primed for state tournament By Julian Cardillo


he Saugus High School baseball team achieved their primary objective: qualifying for the state tournament. Now the goal changes to making as deep a post-season run as possible. The Sachems, who finished the regular season 8-12 and clinched a tournament berth via the Sul-

livan Rule, come into the playoffs ranked 19th. So Saugus will play at no. 12 North Reading, which was 10-10 on the season, in round one of the tournament at 4 p.m. on Sunday. “We’re scouting North Reading already,” said Saugus coach Joe Luis. “They’re known as a small ball team. They’re very good on defense, that’s one of the keys to their game.

“They don’t have big bats, but they bunt and steal and hit and run a lot. We have to prepare ourselves for that type of game, not give them the easy outs.” Luis, who took over as Sachems coach this year, is excited to see how his team, which has continued to improve throughout the season, handles elimination games. “We wanted to make the tournament, and once

you’re in you never know,” Luis said. “This season we took some time to find out who we are as a team. We learned our positions and where certain players excel. Now, at the end of the season, there is a plan in place for us to go forward and be successful.” Luis will send senior pitcher Justin Horvath to the mound against North Reading. He’s got a 1.12 ERA through 39 innings.

Horvath will head to Salem State in the fall, but wants to close out his high school career in style before taking on college ball. “We just want him to throw strikes,” Luis said. “His strikeout-to-walk ratio is very good. He’s had a good season and we want him to keep it going. He should be confident; he’s done well and pitched in a lot of big games for us.”

gus coach Steve Almquist. He continued, “But I am beyond proud of this team. After losing eight seniors to graduation, I don’t think much was expected of us this year, especially after starting seven freshmen and sophomores, many of whom had to play positions they were not accustomed to playing. Many thought that this would be a rebuilding year for Saugus since we had so many open positions to fill, but give credit to the kids; they adapted, worked hard and were competitive in just about every game that we played. They never made any excuses and somehow found a way to win.” Saugus, which finished the season on a three-game winning streak, is 11-9 heading into the post-season. They play their first tournament game on Satur-

day at Danvers. Pitcher Caitlyn Wood settled in against Stoneham and won her 11th game of the season. She went the distance, striking out eight and walking two, but also conceded 10 hits and five earned runs. “Caitlyn didn’t have her best stuff in this game but gutted it out,” said Almquist. Saugus got off to a hot start. Katie Italiano led the first inning off with a double and later scored on an outfield error. Stoneham tied the game in the bottom of the second and then scored three more times in the bottom of the third, making it 4-1. “We weren’t able to muster much offense in the early going but the bats started to come alive in the top of the fifth,” said Almquist. In the fifth, singles by Emma Howard and Nystasia

Rowe and RBI singles by Katie Italiano and Sadie DiCenso cut the lead to 4-3. Two runs in the top of the sixth gave Saugus a 5-4 lead courtesy of singles by Howard and Caity Sheehan and another RBI single by Italiano and an RBI double by Rowe. Stoneham tied the game at five in the bottom of the seventh. In the ninth, after a Sheehan single and walks to Alex Almquist and D.J. Munafo, Rowe delivered the key hit of the game, a two-out two-strike double to right center field, plating Sheehan and Almquist. On offense, Saugus had 14 hits. Rowe (3-5 with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs), Italiano (3-5 with 2 RBIs), Howard (2-5), Sheehan (25), Almquist (2-4), DiCenso (1-5 with an RBI) and Taylor Bogdanski (1-5) picked up the key hits for Saugus.

ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus.

Blessed Sacrament Parish celebrates 100 years in Saugus with a Fun Festival For All on June 4 It will be a day of fun and food for children of all ages in the community. That includes adults. That’s how the Saugus Catholics Collaborative and Blessed Sacrament Parish will host an outdoor”Fun Festival For All” on Pentecost Sunday ( June 4) The event takes place on the grounds of Blessed Sacrament Parish at 14 Summer Street, Saugus. The Festival begins at 12:00 PM, immediately after the conclusion of the 11 a.m. Parish Mass, and will conclude at 4 p.m. “Everyone is welcome!,” said Scott Morin, Youth Minister of Saugus Catholics Collaborative. “Join us for food trucks, a petting zoo, outdoor games, music, face painting, and some great company. And bring the kids, there will be games and prizes,” Morin said. Saugus Catholics Collaborative is made up of Blessed Sacrament Parish and Saint Margaret of Antioch Parish. Both parishes are in Saugus. Blessed Sacrament Parish was incorporated in 1917 as a Parish in Saugus. “The original wooden church was built in 1898 at the corner of Adams Avenue and Herbert Avenue,” Morin said. “It was destroyed by fire in 1909. A new stone Church was built on Central Street and was dedicated in 1910. It is now the Saugus Youth and Recreation building. Our present church on Summer Street was formally dedicated on January 21, 1950,” he said. Attention Saugus Voters!

or more than 40 years, Sylvia Caruso has owned a Route 1 business that offers hope to people looking for help with hair loss – particularly hundreds of cancer patients. The career that began at age 26 when she took over a company that specialized in fashioning custom wigs and custom hair pieces has evolved into somewhat of a calling for the owner of The Hair Studio & Wig Salon that has been operating from the same location at 5 Broadway on the Lynnfield/Saugus town line. Caruso will be honored later this month by the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center as one of “the one hundred” making a difference in the fight against cancer. She will be among the 100 individuals and organizations who will receive recognition at a gala on June 15 at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel. “Our honorees are doctors and nurses selflessly caring for patients and their families, advocates raising awareness for the cancer cause, researchers working tirelessly in their laboratories to make important discoveries and philanthropists contributing generously to make a cure possible,” said Daniel A. Haber, MD, PhD, director of the Cancer Center. “Every day our honorees know they have the chance to do something amazing and make a difference in people’s lives. That is a powerful thing,” Haber said. Close to 500 nominated The Malden resident was among close to 500 nominations submitted for consideration for the 2017 honors from sources around the world through“the one hundred” website. As in previous years, “the one hundred” includes people from all walks of life – from the rich and famous, like New England Patriots owner, businessman and philanthropist Robert Kraft and author Rebecca Skloot – to unsung heroes who work quietly each day. “‘The one hundred’ connects these people and tells their stories, all of which have a common thread: everyone can make a difference in the fight against cancer,” according to a statement by the Cancer Center. “Since its founding, ‘the one hundred’ has recognized 1,000 honorees, including this year’s slate, from 31 states and nine countries,” it continued. The Hair Studio & Wig Salon has developed a niche, according to Caruso, fashioning wigs for cancer patients and hair re-

CARING ABOUT CANCER VICTIMS: Angelica Gentile and Sylvia Caruso at The Hair Studio & Wig Salon at 5 Broadway (Route 1) in Saugus. Caruso, who has been running the business at the same location near the Lynnfield/Saugus town line for more than 40 years, is among “the one hundred” honorees who has been recognized by Massachusetts General Hospital’s Cancer Center for making a difference in the fight against cancer.

placements for men and women. “We’re a registered wig bank with the American Cancer Society,” Caruso said in an interview this week. “We work with insurance companies and bill them directly, so it makes it easier for cancer patients to get wigs. We’ve helped hundreds and hundreds of cancer patients over the years,” she said. Caruso said she and Angelica Gentile of Beverly – one of her employees – will attend the special awards ceremony later this month. “She has been with me for three years. She works mainly with the women coming in and getting the wigs for cancer patients … Angelica has been a very vital part of the business,” Caruso said. Caruso is a cancer survivor A spokesperson for the Cancer Center credited Caruso’s background as a breast cancer survivor as significant, noting she “understand the impact that hair loss can have on a woman’s self-esteem.”But Caruso said she began working with wigs when she was 16 – long before she developed breast cancer about six years ago. Being a cancer survivor definitely helps her serve her cancer clients better, she acknowledged. “The women know that I understand what it is like to have lost my hair, that I truly know what it’s like because I’ve been through it,” Caruso said. “We know that the demand is becoming greater because the incidence of cancer is growing. We help a lot of women who end up with long-term hair loss be-

cause of chemo,” she said. “But a lot of cancer patients don’t know that the insurance companies cover this. We work with the local hospitals and we’re a provider, so we can bill the insurance companies directly.” “The wigs start [at] about $200 and can cost as much as $2,000. We have everything from synthetic to Eastern European. I still have clients who have been with me for over 40 years,” she said. The Hair Studio & Wig Salon works with children, too. The

CONCERNED ABOUT HER CUSTOMERS: Sylvia Caruso, operator of The Hair Studio & Wig Salon at 5 Broadway (Route 1) in Saugus, has been credited with “putting a smile on the face” of many cancer patients who have been her customers. Massachusetts General Hospital’s Cancer Center will honor her later this month when it recognizes this year’s “the one hundred,” an annual award given to those who help cancer patients in inspiring ways.

Jenn Ryan, Assistant Director of Development at Massachusetts General Hospital, said Caruso “truly embodies the Everyday Amazing core of the one hundred event” and “What’s everyday for Sylvia is amazing for the clients she serves. Sylvia utilizes the talents of her profession in order to bring a smile to the faces of patients with cancer.” “The Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center is proud to recognize her as an honoree

of the one hundred 2017, paying tribute to this unsung hero,” she said. Praise from a cancer victim’s husband Les L. Bebchick, the husband of Sheila Bebchick – a Mass General patient who recently passed away, nominated Caruso for the award. Caruso’s mission is to make cancer patients feel like themselves, he said. The couple happened to be traveling with down Route 1 South in Saugus when they noticed Caruso’s sign. Mrs. Bebchik, a stage IV metastatic breast cancer patient, had tried numerous wigs during the 10 years she un-

– though his position was converted to a part-time position to go with another part-time assignment as assistant principal. He received his bachelor’s degree at Salem State University (2000) and his Master of Education from Cambridge College (2004). Nelson said he planned to elaborate on his decision in a future announcement. “I heard some rumors a while back that he was looking,” School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski said yesterday. “It’s natural. People move on. He’s been around for a while. It’s a good opportunity for us to get a fresh face in there. I don’t think change is bad.” “I think when people are around for a while, they go stale,” he said. Grabowski declined to comment on what kind of job he though Nelson has done in his capacity as athletic director. “I don’t think it’s my place to comment. I’m not his supervisor,” Grabowski said. Greater Lawrence Tech’s Superintendent, John Lavoie, spoke highly of Nelson’s contributions to Saugus. “Mike’s accomplishments over a lengthy career in school athletics are truly admirable, and we are excited that he will be bringing his expertise to the GLTS athletic program,” Lavoie said in a press release by the school yesterday. Lavoie continued, “He truly embodies the spirit of what it means to be a Reggie, and we feel lucky to have him joining our team.” Nelson said he hopes to implement new ideas that will help improve the GLTS athletic program, and is also eager to join GLTS at a time when the opening of a new athletic facility is on the horizon. He is also looking forward to hearing from the GLTS community as he works to get to know the Reggie culture. “My plan the first year is to talk and listen to as many people as possible and learn about Greater Lawrence Technical School and the GLTS Athletic Department,” Nelson said. “I want to know what they feel works, what doesn’t, what needs to be improved upon, and what they think is best for the studentathletes at GLTS. I am excited to be a Reggie and I know great

things will come about based on hard work from myself, the coaches and the athletes.” As the athletic director in Saugus, Nelson oversaw the addition of several new sports for girls at the high school, developed a Student-Athlete Leadership Council and launched an Athletic Open House that enabled students to explore the school’s various athletic offerings. He also implemented an athletic study

support group that helps student-athletes succeed in the classroom. “I always thought the kids of GLTS were tough, athletic players. In the same respect I always thought the teams were well coached and well prepared,” Nelson said. “In addition, I share the philosophical approach of GLTS administrators that places an emphasis on setting high expectations for students and seeing to it that they live up to those expectations.”

derwent chemotherapy, all without success, according to her husband. “Sylvia inspired both my wife and I from the very moment we met her. After a discussion of how she wanted to look, we showed her several pictures of the old Sheila. Her eyes lit up, she almost jumped for joy, and said, ‘If you want the old Sheila back, that’s exactly what we are going to do for you,’” Bebchik wrote in his nomination letter. “And she … brought an instant smile and happiness … to Sheila … (We were strangers and this all happened in a space of 1.5 hours.) We also know that she goes out of her way to seek financial assistance for her clients with various charities and cancer organizations,” Bebchik said. He continued, “My nominee

brings joy, self-confidence, dignity, and a return to some normalcy to cancer patients who have lost their hair during or more permanently from chemo and radiation treatment. … Sylvia goes out of her way to make each and every client feel special. She immediately engages each client as if she was a magical wizard who will transform their appearance to the way they used to look or to a way they would like to look; all with the unrelenting determination to allow that client to leave the salon with a smile on their face and a sense of happiness that they have found a person who cares about their happiness and not just another sale.” Sheila Bebchick, a Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer patient, lost her hair three times over her 10 years of treatments

at Mass General, according to her husband. Mrs. Bebchik never felt like herself, even with four other wigs that were purchased in the Greater Boston area. “It wasn’t until we happened upon Sylvia’s salon that Sheila’s smile came back and her sense that the old Sheila, the former Miss Worcester and runner-up to Miss MA (in the day) was back,” Les Bebchik wrote. “She didn’t feel as sick, she didn’t feel as having to assume another identity with wigs that simply didn’t compliment the old Sheila. We brought in a few pictures of the way Sheila used to look before treatments, and with a twinkle in her eye, Sylvia said‘Sheila, you are going to be so happy when you walk out of here.’ And Sheila was, for the 1st time in a long time, truly happy and feeling confident in her appearance like the old Sheila,” he said.
