NEW: Holy Cross Senior Receives Key to the City
Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Calemmo, who serves as the director of community relations for Holy Cross’ Student Government Association (SGA), received a “Key to the City” from Worcester Mayor Joseph Petty, an honor given for Calemmo’s work in the Worcester community.
As the leader of Student Ambassadors Developing External Relations (S.A.D.E.R.), Calemmo has worked to improve the relationship between Holy Cross and residents of the College Hill and South Worcester neighborhoods. Of his many accomplishments, the most notable is leading the charge at Nelson Place School to raise $5,318 for a new automated library system.
Though a native of Sea Isle City, New Jersey, Calemmo has been inspired by Worcester residents and their commitment to making their city better.
“The people of Worcester show a tremendous dedication and commitment to their city,” Calemmo said. “It is something I have always found to be impressive. Many spend their entire careers working hard to improve the quality of life for others, and I think that is something to be truly admired.”
After graduation, Calemmo is set to serve two years in the Greater Philadelphia Corps through Teach for America in Camden, NJ. He will teach elementary school, and work towards a master’s degree in urban education at the University of Pennsylvania.
