“I take the shuttle into Boston on the weekends with my friends. A lot of them haven't been to Faneuil Hall and I've lived close to the city all of my life, so I'm always the one to show them around. So it's really fun to go away on the weekend with the girls.”

P & H - Communication Students Integral in Campus-hosted Lt. Gov. Candidate Forum
March 3, 2011
Curry College proudly welcomed all four Massachusetts lieutenant governor candidates to campus in the fall of 2010, sharing a stage at a forum focused on issues affecting South Shore residents and small businesses.
Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray, state Sen. Richard Tisei, Paul Loscocco and Rick Purcell participated in the event co-sponsored by Curry College, the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, the Patriot Ledger/WickedLocal.com and WCVB-Channel 5.
Curry College President Kenneth K. Quigley, Jr. served as moderator, and panelists included Channel 5 reporter Janet Wu, Patriot Ledger Bureau Chief, Nancy Reardon and South Shore Chamber of Commerce CEO, Peter Forman.
The forum was broadcast on Curry's flagship radio station WMLN 91.5 and streamed live on Curry.edu and several Patriot Ledger/WickedLocal.com affiliate sites.
The event was made possible by a co-curricular team effort, facilitated by the efforts of students in the Curry College Politics and History Club with media coverage provided by students from our Communication department and Milton Public Access.
The two co-presidents of the Politics and History Club, Natalie Petit and Ben Unkles, were each afforded a chance to ask a question of the four candidates during the forum.
Scott Fersht '11 directed the live event with the help of several of his fellow Communication majors. And graphic design major Abigail Michaud pitched in by designing the forum admission tickets.
This real-world opportunity was invaluable in providing Curry students with a first-hand look at the political and civic process.
