As holidays near, West students provide support

'Laz in the House' donates to shelter, tons at a time


Laz In the House “just really accepted it incredibly well,” Campbell added. “How they did it showed incredible responsibility and maturity.”

Their efforts were applauded by the School Committee last week, which heard from the boys during a regular meeting. At the meeting, Andover High Principal Chris Lord jokingly told the boys to report to his office on July 1, the first day of the upcoming school year.

“I’m extremely proud of these young men,” Superintendent Marinel McGrath said. “They have given of themselves in a way that means much to many, many people who are less fortunate. The self reflection and personal growth for each student is remarkable.”

Campbell believes the Laz in the House effect at West Middle is already strong.

“There’s been other individuals and other groups from West Middle School that have come forward, that have done things on their own, which has been nothing short of significant in itself,” he said. “They’ve been a significant contributor for us to continue providing assistance to families that need it in this particular time in their lives. They all have a bright future.”
