Summers at the State House

You never know what you’ll learn from our Penguins! This summer, for example, Caroline Fital ’17 volunteered as a tour guide at the Massachusetts State House. In fact, this is the second summer she’s done so, working with other high school student volunteers to help welcome and tour the 95,000+ visitors each year. This photo of Caroline was taken on a State House balcony while she was touring State Representative Dwyer and his guests. “I applied to this program because I love history,” says Caroline. “I got the opportunity to share my love of history to people from across the country and around the world.”
