Gary Hreschuk was nominated by a former student who wishes to remain anonymous.

Mr. Hreschuk is a fantastic educator who taught the nominator in multiple history and politics classes at Algonquin Regional High School. As a teacher, he guided smart discussions in his classroom with humor, contagious passion and class. He asked for excellence from his students, challenging them to think critically, question their own assumptions and pursue new ideas.

"When I walked into Mr. Hreschuk's classroom for the first time, I was a nervous high school freshman, and I had no idea what I was doing," his nominator said. "He did more than ignite my interest in history and politics. His classes, more than any others, prepared me for college, and set me up to succeed. That experience gave me a leg up and a sense of purpose as I pursued a degree and career in politics and public service. He's done the same for many students."

Mr. Hreschuk continues to serve the Northborough-Southborough community as the Assistant Principal at Trottier Middle School.

"His passion, humor and inspiration changed countless lives at Algonquin, and students at Trottier Middle School are lucky to have him," the nominator said.
