Honoring Mary Livingstone

The humanities center at Weymouth High School is now officially the Mary J. Livingstone Humanities Center, in honor of the schools superintendent who died last spring. The room was dedicated in a ceremony last month. A plaque was hung above the entrance to the room and a portrait of Livingstone, painted by 2010 Weymouth High graduate Julianne Smith, is displayed inside. “As the years go by, and people come and go through this great school, knowing a small part of [Livingstone’s] spirit will remain here is comforting,” said interim superintendent Matthew Ferron. “When students, teachers, and citizens gather in this room to share ideas, to plot the course of our learning community, and to inspire each other to better things, her legacy will live on.” - Johanna Seltz
