Remembering Mayor Menino

Remembering Mayor Menino

The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum remembers Mayor Thomas M. Menino with gratitude for his support and friendship.  Always putting Boston’s children first, Mayor Menino set a tremendous example for all those seeking to make a difference in our community.  He will be truly missed.
