UMass President Marty Meehan speaks at Woburn Student Government Day Luncheon hosted by the Rotary Club.Our Rotary Club recently continued its tradition of hosting the annual Student Government Day Luncheon. UMass President Marty Meehan was on hand to serve as our keynote speaker. He offered students encouraging words about his own success, a result of setting goals, hard work and getting a good education. President Meehan was certainly a perfect speaker for Student Government Day, providing insight from his time serving in Congress.
Mayor Scott Galvin joined with Meehan, along with student mayor Carlos Luiz Freitas, to provide greetings at the noontime dinner event by the Woburn Rotary Club at the Crowne Plaza’s main ballroom. The full ballroom was also greeted by Rotary Club president  Daniel Lannan. On the first day, the students met their counterparts in the rotunda of City Hall and were then given an overview of the 2-day program, including a mock City Council meeting.  On the second day, students joined with their counterparts in city government and went through the daily routines and job functions of each department from the police and fire chief to the city engineer and others.
