Heather Sylvia '95

"They Don't Always Make The News, But They Truly Make The Difference" 


Heather Sylvia, Bishop Stang class of 1995, was selected as a 2021 Commonwealth Heroine by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women.

Heather is Acushnet's Council on Aging Director and, in addition to her long-standing leadership in community service, has spent this difficult period during the pandemic increasing the availability & accessibility of services to residents. She spearheaded a USDA Farm to Families program enabling 637 families to receive healthy meals. She volunteered assisting with COVID-19 testing clinics as well as mobile vaccination efforts, and assisted seniors with keeping safe and engaged during the lonely months of lock-downs. Heather truly embodies the Bishop Stang mission of service as well as our theme this year to "Be the Light". 

Thank you Heather for all that you do for our community!
