We here in Colchester are so fortunate to have such generous individuals and businesses that regularly and continuously contribute to not only our school system, but to the community in general. These people who contribute, many anonymously, seek no accolades, no personal rewards other than the knowledge they have had a positive effect on their community. The CSD Spotlight will endeavor to celebrate the Hometown Heros of Colchester whenever we encounter them or hear of their stories. If you know of a Hometown Hero, let us know here at CSD Spotlight so we can share the positive energy they bring to our community.
This Hometown Hero message comes to us from the Colchester High School Librarian, Christine Eldred:
“A big thank you to Jiffy Mart Manager James Beckett for his donation to the Colchester High School Library! Every day, Jiffy Mart donates a copy of the Burlington Free Press and the New York Times to the CHS library for all students and staff to enjoy. Daily newspapers are a tremendous resource for CHS and this gift helps stretch the library budget considerably. Mr. Beckett’s generosity is greatly appreciated!”
