Not only does the School Committee schedule its office hours at the same time as my office hours, but then Anna Mae asks me to tell you about theirs!  Special points for those who get to both.

Reading this morning

reading at Mrs. Newton's class at Wheelock-20190410

This morning I was invited to be the mystery reader in Mrs. Newton’s class at Wheelock School.  The kids chose the deerstalker hat (think Sherlock Holmes) for the first time, over the train engineer, the jester, or the Christmas tree hats!

Maeve Devlin is the 2019 MFi Youth Volunteer of the Year

MFi Salutes Maeve Devlin – Youth Volunteer of the Year!

Medfield Foundation, Inc. is proud to announce this year’s Youth Volunteer of the Year – Maeve Devlin.  Through the nomination provided by her Teacher, Gail Duffy, it is clear that Maeve exemplifies the qualities MFi looks for:  a dedicated volunteer who is driven to provide a meaningful impact in the town of Medfield.

Ms. Duffy describes Maeve this way: “One of the most striking aspects of Maeve Devlin is the fact that she really doesn’t see the enormity of what she’s done.”  In her work with the Best Buddies program at Medfield High, Maeve has “fostered a transformative experience” for all students, both those with cognitive delays, as well as those without.  In her 2 years working with this program, Maeve has led by “example, enthusiasm, warmth and tenacity.”  She has succeeding in transforming this into a club where “all students look forward to meeting as friends.”

Maeve has been a force for good in her school, leading other classmates, both those in her class, as well as upper classmen, to become part of her revolution.  By her Sophomore year, Maeve was on the Leadership Board of the Best Buddies, and began organizing some fantastic initiatives such as a pre-Trick-or-Treating party for all of the participants.  Maeve has also organized her friends to participate in the Friendship Walk, catapulting her Chapter into the top 15 of fundraisers.

In her spare time, when not giving her heart to this program, Maeve is the Captain of the Girls Varsity Basketball team, serves as her class’ Vice President, works as a waitress, and does it all with an optimistic smile.

Although Maeve’s accomplishments are amazing in of themselves, what is truly spectacular is that she has developed true, authentic and long-lasting friendship with the participants in the Best Buddies program.

Maeve had tough competition this year, and we would like to take a moment to thank the other Youth Volunteer of the Year nominees.  Hannah Rogan, Morgan Caro and Sam Joline we sincerely thank you for your dedication and volunteer spirit focused on improving our town!


Please join us on March 31, from 3pm to 5pm at The Center at Medfield to honor all of this year’s very special Volunteers! 


The Medfield Foundation Volunteer Awards are made possible through the sponsorship of Roche Bros. and Brother’s Marketplace.
