Medfield's Mike Foley, has been chosen to participate in Governor Deval Patrick's "Project 351" community service project on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014.

"I am thrilled to announce that Mike Foley, one of our eighth grade students, has been selected as Medfield's ambassador for Project 351," said Nathaniel Vaughn, Principal of Blake Middle School where Foley is a student. 

"Ambassadors should embody the ethic of service and associated values -- humility, integrity, compassion, commitment, and generosity of spirit.  In essence, Project 351 celebrates and encourages students' leadership and commitment to others," Vaughn said. "We are proud and honored that Mike will be representing Blake and the community of Medfield." 

“I welcome Project 351 Ambassadors from across the Commonwealth to unite in the spirit of service,” said Patrick in a press release this week. “Our young people have unlimited potential to create positive change across our Commonwealth, our nation and our world. Project 351 recognizes that while providing a wonderful opportunity to inspire, challenge and motivate our next generation of leaders to give back and make a significant impact in our community.”
