Hopkinton Native Gets Ready to Become a Marine

In the first Friday of every month local Military Veterans meet at the Hopkinton Senior Center for breakfast. This month at the breakfast they welcomed Hopkinton native and soon to be Marine, Thomas Shambo. Shambo graduated Hopkinton High School last June and is the Son of 12 year Navy Veteran, Alicia Shambo. His desire to join the military started at a very young age; "I knew I wanted to be in the Military when I was 5... My Mom would come into school and would talk about the Military and it kind of sparked it." Thomas started training in the 8th grade in which he did a 5 week summer boot-camp, he was also a 3 sport athlete in High School and has been training throughout the summer to get ready for the 13 week boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina.

In the video below some local Marine Veterans had some advice to offer Thomas Shambo about Parris Island and HCAM News talked with the soon to be Marine.

Throughout the Summer, the Sky's the Limit Courtyard project has been putting their donations to work. In the beginning of July the courtyard was dug out to get it ready for the bricks, performance area and more. Middle School Assistant Principal and a key initiator of the project, Maryellen Grady gave HCAM news an update on the progress: "The bricks are in that are going to go in the walk way, they have done the hard-scaping, they leveled the courtyard, we have had a lot of exciting things that have happened."

Maryellen mentioned that by the end of the summer the hard-scape with bricks people ordered will be installed, the performance area and pergola will also be completed. "The space will be ready for use by the students, the teachers and the entire community." Grady stated they would "love" to have the project completed by the time the students come back to school in September and also expressed gratitude towards the donors, "none of the project would be possible without the generosity of the community". The project has been largely funded by individual and business donations.
