The Board of Education meeting kicked off on Thursday night with student recognition, including a tribute to Scooter Harrington by Cardinals football coach John Marinelli.

The senior football captain is in receipt of a Division I football scholarship to Boston College next fall.

“His transcript shows a lot of AP Courses, work in the community, relentless effort in the classroom, and effort on both the football field and the lacrosse field. He’s shown everyone in the community what a tremendous spark he is,” Marinelli said. “I can’t say enough about him as a captain and as a leader. In the real world of football, for a high school athlete to play every single play — on offense, defense and special teams — it’s just not seen any more.”

“We’re going to miss him,” Marinelli said.
