Chancellor Michael F. Collins was the keynote speaker at the Worcester Technical High School staff orientation on Monday, Aug. 29, where he commended the group for the school’s recent strong MCAS scores and other accomplishments. “I am your biggest fan,” said Chancellor Collins, who was invited to speak by Principal Sheila M. Harrity.

In his inspirational talk, he asked the group to focus on mentoring students. “If the work of your hands can affect those hearts and shape those minds, boy, will you make our city proud, and will you continue to be one great success,” said Collins.
