WOONSOCKET â€“ A former Revere, Mass., educator has filed an application with the Rhode Island Department of Education to establish a regional mayoral academy that would serve students from Woonsocket, North Smithfield and Burrillville.
Rosalind Murphy filed the application for the school in partnership with Rhode Island Mayoral Academies, an organization co-founded by Michael Magee, the current CEO, and Cumberland Mayor Daniel McKee in 2008 to provide technical support and other assistance to mayoral academies.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Quick, what do Superman, President Barack Obama and screen actor Jason Statham all have in common?
Yeah, theyâ€™re all men with an uber-high public profile. Celebrities, you might say.
Then thereâ€™s Detective Sgt. Phil Kamer, a 16-year veteran of the Woonsocket Police Department: Heâ€™s no celebrity, but with a little luck he could end up in the same place as the Man of Steel, Obama and the tough-guy actor â€“ on the cover of the largest menâ€™s fitness magazine in the country.
