"By making an investment in the city, he made an investment in me." Green Team member Rosa makes memorable speech on 4/30.
Last Wednesday, one of our High School students on the Green Team, Rosa Diaz, had the opportunity to make a speech in front of a room of state and local leaders and introduce Governor Patrick.
