THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 17, 2024 Page 3 Four members of MVRCS’ Class of 2025 to receive National Merit recognition By Emily Brennan M ystic Valley Regional Charter School has received notice that four current juniors will receive recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). Mabel Ho, Thomas Oliveira, Timothy Rosell and Matthew Weng met the requirements to enter the program based on the 2023 Preliminary SAT Test (PSAT). From more than 1.3 million program entrants, these four students are among the 50,000 highest-scoring participants who will be recognized as Semifinalists or Commended Students this fall. “We are incredibly proud of the work these students have done to position themselves so strongly in this competitive process,” said Mystic Valley Director/Superintendent Alex Dan. “Each of them is an example of what is possible when a student makes a commitment to mastering the school’s robust curriculum, including Direct Instruction Reading, Saxon Math, Core Knowledge, the Great Books, and the International Baccalaureate. This rigorous program lays the groundwork that leads to success as students move through their K-12 career at Mystic Valley, and we are incredibly proud of Mabel, Thomas, Timothy, and Matthew on this remarkable accomplishment.” NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by the NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 400 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

CHA named to Newsweek’s List of Best Maternity Hospitals 2024 Recognized for excellence in reducing pregnancy risk F or the fourth year, Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), a community health system serving Cambridge, Somerville and Boston’s metro-north communities, has been named to Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. High-quality maternity care provided from pregnancy through birth and postpartum is key to the long-term health of newborns and women who give birth. Given that maternity care is a major component of health care, Newsweek and Statista have partnered to identify America’s Best Maternity Hospitals in 2024. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website. This honor reflects CHA’s extensive efforts to reduce pregnancy risk and support equitable patient care. CHA employs a model of collaborative interprofessional care, with a focus on shared decision making with patients. Three data sources were used for the evaluation: ● Nationwide online survey: Health care professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about maternity processes (e.g., neonatal and perinatal doctors, nurses and midwives) were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the USA ● Medical Key Performance Indicators on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care ● Results from patient surveys “We are thrilled to be recognized for the fourth year in a row for Newsweek’s prestigious award,” said CHA’s chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Tara Singh, MD. “We strongly believe in our vision to provide excellent care for all, and we thank our patients for recognizing our team’s hard work.” CITY SEEKING VOLUNTEERS TO HONOR ALL WHO SERVED MEMORIAL DAY FLAG PLACEMENT AT MALDEN CEMETERIES From Monday May 13 to Friday, May 17, 2024, in the Holy Cross Cemetery and Monday, May 20 to Friday, May 24, 2024, in the Forest Dale Cemetery, the City of Malden and volunteers will decorate veterans' graves at our city cemeteries.
