GHS Student Ambassador launches Spring service project!

Project 351 2017 banner

We are proud to announce that Robert Provost, Jr., of Greenfield High School, is this year’s eighth-grade Ambassador of Project 351.  He joins more than 370 other young leaders across the Commonwealth in a statewide youth-led service initiative to lead positive change in the lives of children. Project 351 is a non-profit, statewide youth-driven service organization that convenes an eighth grader from every city and town in Massachusetts for a transformative year of leadership development, enrichment, and impact through unique service opportunities.

In order to be chosen as an Ambassador, one must possess kindness, compassion, humility, gratitude, and a dedication to service of the community. When Ms. Bennett and the other eighth grade teachers read the application, Bob Provost instantly came to mind to be Greenfield High School’s Ambassador.

On Sunday, January 28th, Bob traveled to Boston and joined the other 350 ambassadors at Faneuil Hall for a day of high-impact service, team-building, and networking. Bob will continue to serve the Town of Greenfield in his role as ambassador and is currently launching a spring service campaign.

Provost’s Spring Service will benefit Cradles to Crayons, a nonprofit group that provides low-income and homeless children with everyday essentials. Cradles to Crayons is looking to collect new and gently used clothing and shoes in sizes infant up to adult medium. Donation bins will be set up all week (3/26/18-4/6/18)  at Greenfield High School, the local branch of Greenfield Savings Bank, Mowry & Schmidt, Inc., and Classic Kitchens.
