Each is presented with an award and a stipend to be used in his/her classroom or department as he/she sees fit – no paperwork or strings attached.
The three awardees will be recognized at a reception and dinner at Jacobs Hall Masonic Lodge, 8 Newton St., on Thursday, May 15. A social hour will begin at 5 p.m., with dinner following at 6 p.m.

|Chinese students visit Marlborough High School|
During the week of March 24, Marlborough High School hosted 10 Chinese students for six days as part of the Cambridge Institute of International Education. The tenth-graders shadowed MHS students, attended classes, and participated in activities to learn about American culture and share theirs with MHS.
Last fall, MHS applied to be a host school for international students, and the application was approved. Participation in the institute will bring wonderful perspectives to the school and will help MPS students increase their global knowledge as well as share the wonderful educational opportunities available in our schools. We hope this visit will lead to enrollment by international students at MHS and will facilitate the creation of a truly global community in the Marlborough schools.
