Mayor Sarno Visits with Students from Mary A. Dryden Veterans Memorial School

|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno visited students at Mary A. Dryden Veterans Memorial School as part of their career day where parents and special guests visited to talk about their jobs and careers. Mayor Sarno shared his background with students and what it’s like serving as Mayor for the City of Springfield.

Mayor Sarno stated, “what a great group of students at our Mary Dryden School.  Some were dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up and we had a great time talking about our city and how important education and staying in school is to achieve their dreams.  I often remind them that I once sat right where they sit when I was a Springfield public schools’ student back at White Street Elementary School. I do this because it is important to remember, and for our students to realize, they are our future leaders. The future leaders of our city, our state, our country, and future world leaders are sitting in our Springfield classrooms right now, learning and growing and coming together to solve problems. I was honored to be part of their career day and truly appreciate the very thoughtful questions from the students. I am also very proud of our teachers and school staff for their dedication to teaching our future leaders. Thank you to Principal Theresa Carrie and Counselor Lisa Jones for welcoming and inviting me today. Keep up the excellent work!”
