Communications Office welcomes BCLA intern Shawn Wiggins, Jr.

The BPS Communications Office is hosting a student intern this week. Shawn Wiggins, Jr., of Dorchester, is a senior at Boston Community Leadership Academy (BCLA). The internship is part of a capstone project in which all BCLA students compile research, gather data, and conduct interviews to complete a 40-page paper about subjects of concern to students. Shawn is examining the role of the achievement gap in the school choice process. Shawn is also the captain of the school's Debate Team and a self-taught alto saxophone player. He aspires to attend college next year and become a high school English teacher. In his first day of the internship, Shawn met Superintendent Carol R. Johnson and will meet other central office leaders throughout the week.
