McGovern taps Vaillancourt to select House roundtable

U.S. Rep. James McGovern has selected Luke Vaillancourt of Vaillancourt Folk Art in Sutton to represent the 2nd Mass. District at the upcoming U.S. House of Representatives Small Business Committee Roundtable Discussion on May 2.

About 30 small-business owners from around the country will share perspectives on ways government can help small businesses succeed. McGovern selected Vaillancourt because of his role in the family’s business and involvement with several regional business organizations.

“Small businesses are the heart and soul of our economy in Central Massachusetts and Vaillancourt Folk Art is a shining example,” McGovern said. “For more than 30 years, Luke Vaillancourt and his family have been a strong part of our community, running their business with pride.”

“When people talk about small businesses they often confuse the term by defining a small business as having one or two employees,” Vaillancourt said. “Since 1984, our staff of 19 has relied on Vaillancourt Folk Art for their livelihood. Every employee feels the struggles and victories that our business feels, and when a small business is taxed and penalized as if it were a large corporation, it hurts all of us.

“The struggles of a small business aren’t about trying to grow into a ‘big’ business, it’s about ensuring our employees have a job, thus allowing our business to be around for another generation.”

HC names VP for student affairs, dean of students

Michele C. Murray has been named vice president for student affairs and dean of students at the College of the Holy Cross. She succeeds Jacqueline D. Peterson, who is retiring after 20 years.

Murray “has served Jesuit higher education for 21 years, and brings deep experience in leading a diverse and dedicated team within the increasingly complex landscape of higher education,” Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president of Holy Cross, said.

Since 2006, Murray has served as vice president of the Division of Student Development at Seattle University.

“From my first interaction with the search committee and throughout my campus visit, the pride that students, faculty and staff feel for the College was evident,” Murray said. “I have long admired Holy Cross, its commitment to excellence and its dedication to holistic student development, and I can’t imagine a better place to continue serving Jesuit higher education.”

Azure 8, a developer of a transdermal patch technology platform that administers medicine to desired efficacy levels to prevent addiction and abuse, won The Venture Forum’s annual 5-Minute Pitch Contest recently at WPI.

Both companies also receive a meeting with the Cherrystone Angels, a meeting with the Boynton Angels, four hours of accounting services from Greenberg, Rosenblatt, Kull & Bitsoli, and one year at the Worcester CleanTech Incubator.

The Audience Choice award of $1,000 went to Chris Mutti, founder of SmartDiiet, a hardware and software add-on device that measures portion size and macro-nutrients of a meal. Alex Stankiewicz, founder of ClockCoach, a mobile wearable device to properly align circadian rhythms to optimize individual physical and cognitive performance, received $500 as Poster Contest winner.

Auburn Rotary, Horse and Heroes Foundation name police horse ‘Tarentino Strong’

The Rotary Club of Auburn and the Horses and Heroes Foundation Inc. will dedicate the naming of police horse “Tarentino Strong” in honor of fallen Auburn Police Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr.

The ceremony will be held at noon May 7 at Lemansky Park, 22 Brayman St., Auburn.

“Both I and the men and women from the Auburn Police Department would like to express our gratitude to Skyllar Mullvaney and the Horses and Heroes Foundation for naming this horse in memory of Officer Tarentino,” Auburn Police Chief Andrew J. Sluckis Jr. said. “We would also like to thank the members of the Auburn Rotary Club for all of the assistance that was given to make this day possible.”

Tarentino was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop on Rochdale Street on May 23, 2016. He served with the Auburn Police Department for two years and had previously served with the Leicester PD. He is survived by his wife and three children.

Tarentino’s family will travel to Washington, D.C., in May to dedicate the placement of his name on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Tarantino Strong will be on station in the nation’s capital at that time.

Worcester named Tree City USA for 31st straight year

For the 31st consecutive year, Worcester has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

Augustus Jr. said. “The city is proud to again be recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation for our longstanding commitment to our urban forest.”
