The organization We Can Change the World was born and is now going strong with voluneer projects in the community.
The group also set up a website and Facebook page to speak out about bullying and members hope to take the message to elementary and middle schools. Larocque and her teammates also visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities to help residents with a variety of projects and chores.
Architecture awards presented
Local students won awards through the New Hampshire Architecture Foundation Awards Scholarships program.
Matthew Arsenault of Hampstead, a graduate of Pinkerton Academy, won an award as part of his studies in architecture. He is a third-year student at Wentworth Institute of Technology; Pinkerton graduate Stefan Burnett of Derry also took honors. He will enter Wentworth this fall.
Scholarships are granted to students who are currently enrolled or accepted to an accredited undergraduate or graduate professional architecture degree program and who are New Hampshire residents. This scholarship is supported in part by a grant from the AIA Component Matching Grant Program.
The scholarships were presented by Dale Doller AIA, president of the NH Architecture Foundation and immediate past president of AIANH, at a recent joint meeting with Plan NH at the McLane Audubon Center in Concord.
