Ghlee Woodworth, local author and historian, provided invaluable information to students with their projects. Ghlee generously donated time and materials, along with providing tutorials of the Clipper Heritage Trail online. She sat for interviews, provided research assistance and guided many students in their learning.
There have been countless others who have contributed toward student learning and the further education about Newburyport’s storied history. To all parents, contacts and citizens, thank you.
This project has brought awareness to countless city residents who were previously unfamiliar with some of the institutions, programs and educational experiences Newburyport has to offer.
We hope that the exploration of and passion for our city’s history will continue, and we strongly urge everyone to visit and support these treasures that surround us.
We cordially invite the general public to the “Port Project” exposition. Please come support these wonderful students and learn about their discoveries made this year.
The “Port Project” will have its opening exposition at the Custom House Maritime Museum on Friday, May 23, from 6-8 p.m.
