Green Medford Presentation Event
From the People Against Pollution Club of the early 1970s, to more than 30 environmental projects
undertaken by students this school year, Medford High School has a proud, five-decade tradition of
environmental activism. The City of Medford also has been a leader in this area over that time, creating
the first municipal Climate Action Plan in Massachusetts, erecting one of region’s first wind turbines, and
currently building what will be the state’s first net-zero energy and carbon-neutral library.
On this the 50th anniversary of the “new” Medford High School, three MHS students – John Scarpelli,
Tyler Lam and Enzo Zerlotini – spent the school year researching the environmental accomplishments in
Medford since 1970, as well as looking at current and future challenges.
They will present their report, “Green Medford: A 50-Year Tradition,” to the public via Zoom at 6:30 p.m.
on Wednesday, May 6. All are welcome to log in to view the presentation at this link:
“Green Medford: A 50-year Tradition,” is a project of the Center for Citizenship and Social
Responsibility in the Medford Public Schools, which is funded by Cummings Foundation, the Krystle
Campbell Community Betterment Fund, and other generous donors.
