We Americans, since July 4th, 1776, when 56 delegates from across the 13 Colonies converged on Philadelphia to seal our national fate, live by our colors. It’s the representation of everything we are and strive to be.
We’ve seen it endure through all types of adversity—wars, riots, protests, foreign incursion. Yet we keep striving…and so do our colors.
What makes this country great is not necessarily the decisions we make, but our desire to always be better. This is what separates us from everyone else. We don’t play to be safe. We play big. We play to win, always. It’s that first Betsy Ross Flag, with its 13 Stars, that represents
this great American experiment. It shows, from 13 to 50, that we’re an evolving people who never settle for less. It represents our penchant for adventure and excellence, how we’ll never quit.
The first stitching on our flag is more than a statement—it’s the building block of our national soul.
The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. These limitations serve to protect the natural rights of liberty and property. They guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government’s power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public.

The Worcester Business Journal’s Matt Pilon recently reported:
Mount Wachusett Community College has recently received a STEM Grant to the tune of $640,000 to provide scholarships and support services to students studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The five-year grant, from the National Science Foundation, is the largest MWCC has received from that agency. The grant aims to keep associate’s degree students on track to graduate within two or three years, and also to facilitate transfers to four-year colleges or universities after graduation from MWCC.
The Gardner-based community college will recruit 30 STEM students a year into its biotech, computer information systems, pre-engineering and natural resources majors.
Participating students will be eligible for faculty mentoring, professional and peer tutoring and other services.
The grant comes on the heels of an announcement last fall that the state would provide $37.9 million to MWCC to build a new science and technology building in Gardner. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2014.
