Highlights: 2013 Senior Recognition Night

As the class of 2013 prepared to say goodbye to Hopkinton High and move on to new experiences and challenges, many were honored at Senior Recognition Night June 6th for all that they had accomplished in the past four years.

One of the night's biggest honors, the Principal's Leadership Award, was given to Brian Doyle for his exemplification of leadership qualities in and out of the classroom.

The entire ceremony is currently replaying on HCAM-ED Verizon channel 31 Comcast channel 96. DVDs can also be purchased on the HCAM website for $15 each.

At this very moment there could be a devastating pest destroying your community’s trees called the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB). The ALB has the potential to destroy more than 70 percent of the Massachusetts tree canopy but it can be stopped. Without doubt. Our best line of defense is to have as many eyes looking for the ALB and its signs as possible. To help make this happen the U.S. Department of Agriculture has designated August as Tree Check Month.

The ask is simple – take 10 minutes this summer to check your trees for the ALB and any signs of damage it causes.
