Laser Show Blog: Allow me to reintroduce myself Reply

Zac VierraCo-Editor-in-Chief

Hello loyal readers of The 1851 Chronicle. Some of you may know me as Zac or Veast or that guy that is co-editor of the Chronicle. Today I am debuting the Laser Show Blog here on the1851chronicle.org.

What is the Laser Show Blog you ask? I decided since I am roughly a month away from graduating and have about a million things to do I should add one more thing to help me procrastinate from all of the school work. Makes sense right?

This blog is going to a place for me to talk about a variety of different topics ranging from sports to stress of graduating. Basically since it’s my blog I’m going to touch on whatever I feel like but of course I will always relate it back to Lasell. The hope is that this blog will be a success and when I pass the torch (get it?) of my editor position it will continue in some shape or form. More…

This summer the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will hold its annual Against the Tide swim, walk, run, and kayak fundraising events for breast cancer prevention. Former Lasell student Courtney Taylor has been working as a Special Events and Outreach intern for the MBCC, a cause that for her hits close to home.

Taylor graduated from Lasell in May of 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and in September of 2012 she started interning for the MBCC.

“What I find the most fascinating about MBCC is the fact that they have such a unique goal of preventing breast cancer. So many other organizations help raise funds to treat it, but MBCC is determined to stop this disease before it even starts,” said Taylor. “I have seen the millions of lives affected by breast cancer, and being able to be a part of a movement that is trying to put a halt to such wide-spread epidemic is really an honor.” More…
