Shovels in for Nock school renovations

(Continued)

State Sen. Kathleen O’Connor Ives, D-Newburyport, told several dozen youngsters chosen to attend the ceremony that “A community wants to keep improving so it will be a great place to live, and have quality schools that can prepare youngsters like you.

“This is a very good day for the city and for its students.”

Holaday recognized those in the Port Pride campaign and one of its key leaders, Meghan Kinsey, for its successful effort in persuading voters to pay for renovations at the Nock-Molin, a new Bresnahan Elementary School and a proposed senior community center.

The Nock school was built more than four decades ago, and at least one observer had memories of its earliest days.

“I was at the first groundbreaking, in about 1970,” said a senior construction executive, who was not identified. “I didn’t think I’d see a second, but this will make for a better school and educational experience.”
