Exemplary Character


Boston, who left her home in St. Thomas (U.S. Virgin Islands) to live with her aunt in Worcester, has volunteered locally as a student ambassador for Worcester Academy and as a youth basketball coach. “Aliyah is unguardable most of the time,” said Tara Brisson, head coach of the Tilton School. “She is so skilled and strong, and the leap she has made between last year and this year is insane.”
