Diploma Plus in Charlestown High School

Diploma Plus, a program designed to assist students who have not had traditional success in public high school towards completion of their degrees, was not only given the required fiscal support from Liberty Mutual to continue their operations, but was recognized across New England for a specific educator’s excellence and dedication. Sunny Pai, who has taught at Charlestown for the last 12 school-years, was nominated for the Nellie Mae Foundation’s annual Lawrence W. O’Toole Award that is accompanied by a $100,000 grant to supplement and expand the program.
