Students from two of Molly Lonergan’s English classes conducted one-on-one interviews with veterans who had served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

“Our goal is to make Westborough a great place for veterans to live, and the best way to do this is working side-by-side on projects like this,” said Brent French, chairman of the Westborough Veterans Advisory Board.  “The support veterans get from the entire community, and especially Westborough schools, is remarkable and not something we take for granted.”
