WHS Sophomore Michael Martinez was quoted in the Boston Globe for his participation in the community service program Project 351.

Michael Martinez, a 10th-grader at Weston High School who participated in Project 351 three years ago, returned this year as an alumnus for the second time. “Our generation is kind of looked down upon, and to have something like Project 351 — it really demonstrates that young people are stepping up,” he said.

“We want to be leaders and we want to help our community and have a positive impact on the people around us,” he said.
