first_imgBOSTON, MA — Wilmington Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello was recently named one of the state’s “Unsung Heroines” by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women for her valuable, yet sometimes unnoticed, contributions to Wilmington.Marciello, who has served as the town’s Elderly Services Director for 21 years, was honored in a ceremony at the State House on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.According to the Commission, “the Unsung Heroines are women who don’t always make the news, but truly make the difference. They are the women who use their time, talent and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others and make a difference in their neighborhoods, cities and towns. They are mentors, volunteers and innovators who do what needs to be done without expectations of recognition or gratitude. These women are the glue that keeps a community together and every community has them.”Wilmington’s State Senator Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) nominated Marciello for the honor.  Tarr and Wilmington’s State Representative David Robertson (D-Tewksbury) was at the ceremony to honor Marciello.“The Unsung Heroines are women who don’t make the news, but make a big difference. Terri Marciello of Wilmington is a perfect example of the women in every community of the state that perform unheralded acts on a daily basis that make our homes, neighborhoods, cities, and towns better places to live,” wrote Robertson in a statement to Wilmington Apple. “She’s used her time, talent, spirit, and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others in their community. She is a mentor, volunteer, and innovator who strives to protect and represent the interests of seniors, victims of violence, children, immigrants, and other vulnerable populations. She is the glue that keeps a community together, and I’m glad she was recognized for her years of selfless work.”Marciello follows in the footsteps of several other recent Wilmington recipients, including Selectwoman and WOW founder Jomarie OMahony, former Historical Commission Chair Carolyn Harris, the late Superintendent Joanne Benton, “Heaps of Hope” founder Holly Walton, and teacher Donna Murphy.Terri Marciello receiving her citation with State Senator Bruce Tarr, State Representative David Robertson, Town Manager Jeff Hull, Town Administrative Assistant Beverly Dalton, and family.
