Wareham Middle School gives November Scotty Award

Dec 6, 2022

Wareham Middle School student Gerard Gibbs has won the November Scotty Monteiro Jr. Award. 

The “Scotty Award,” as it is called, is given monthly by the Scotty Monteiro Jr. Foundation. Established in memory of its namesake, a 21-year-old Wareham man who was murdered in 2009, the Foundation’s stated aim is to “stop the violence” by highlighting outstanding youth.

“Gerard is always kind and friendly to others,” a statement from the school read. “He demonstrates respect to his peers and staff at all times. He is a role model student that strives to do his best academically and serves as a leader in the classroom.”
