Adam Munroe and his wife, Heather Bobeck Munroe (a lifelong resident of Hopkinton), have four children, and one will be entering Hopkinton High School in the fall.
I met Adam when we served together on the Marathon Committee. He is also an elected member of our Board of Assessors. Adam is no stranger to volunteering, He worked in India for the Indian Institute of Emergency Medical Services, for Habitat for Humanity in Vietnam, to help after natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina, and with the recovery after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York.
Adam has obtained his master’s degree and is presently a Ph.D. candidate doing research in nursing education. He joined the faculty of MassBay Community College and became chair and director of the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Adam is on the staff at Milford Hospital and a guest lecturer at Framingham State University. His varied employment has given him a background in administration, policy, budget preparation and collaboration that should complement and assist the School Committee.
He is an advocate for special education. He believes in caring for the whole student both mentally and physically. Education is the path forward, and anything he can do to enable youth to find that path is what he loves to do.
Vote Adam Munroe for School Committee on May 15.
— Mary Jo LaFreniere, Hopkinton
