Foster and Perkins speakers at Mayor’s Civic Academy

The Mayor’s Civic Academy provides young Worcester leaders a unique opportunity to learn about Worcester history and demographics, government, politics and elections, and innovation and entrepreneurship. The first in the program series “History/Empowerment/Civic Engagement” was held at Worcester Historical Museum on February 1. Invited speakers were Abby Kelley Foster (portrayed by Lynne McKenney Lydick) and Frances Perkins (portrayed by Ann Marie Shea). 

Young leaders (between the ages of 18 and 35) were nominated for acceptance into the 2016 Mayor’s Civic Academy.
