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.
