This year has truly been a year of celebration for Worcester Technical High School. At the end of September Worcester Technical High School was selected by the U.S. Department of Education to receive the National Blue Ribbon School Award. This award recognized Worcester Tech’s progress in improving student test scores. Worcester Tech was the fifth Central Massachusetts school to receive the award since 1982. To put the Blue Ribbon Award in perspective there are approximately 98,000 K-12 public schools and 33,000 K-12 private schools in the United States, and only 286 of these schools earned this prestigious award, which represents 0.2%.

In March, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan toured Worcester Technical High School and participated in a town hall discussion with staff, students, and business partners. Secretary Duncan commented, "I’ve been to many schools, Worcester Tech is a world class institution." Secretary Duncan later stated, "This school has demonstrated that regardless of whether or not you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, regardless of what your parents’ income is, you can be extraordinarily successful."

On March 20th, I scheduled an assembly with the Class of 2014 and shared some extraordinary news with them. I had the great privilege of informing them that President Barack Obama will be the commencement speaker at their graduation ceremony. At first, students sat stunned and speechless and then the magnitude of the message set in and students erupted in cheers and tears. As we work out graduation details, we will certainly keep you informed.

We closed out March with Worcester Tech’s annual motivational speaker event at the Hanover Theater on Thursday March 27th. This year’s guest speaker was General Colin Powell. General Powell spoke to a packed theater, but left everyone in the room feeling as if he was talking directly to them. He encouraged Worcester Tech students to work hard, set high standards, and to get ready because they are the future leaders of this great country. General Powell noted that there are ten schools named after him nationwide and told the crowd "I want Worcester". General Powell then returned to Worcester Tech and toured the school for nearly two hours. His genuine interest and affable nature was evident to staff and students alike. It was an unforgettable day for the Worcester Tech community.

All of this success could not have happened without supportive parents and guardians. We will continue to work together to ensure your child’s success.
