Morrow was thankful for the opportunity: “It really opened my eyes to what it’s like to be a lawyer. I was able to go to court several times and be in meetings as they worked with clients on some interesting transactions.” “My partners and I are thrilled to be able to offer two students from Malden Catholic the opportunity to gain experience working in the law,” said Di Marco, an MC graduate. “We sought to create a rewarding experience for them at our firm. It was an honor to give back to MC. MC MC seniors Santiago Marmolejo Rocha and Jake Morrow recently completed internships at Foster, Walker & Di Marco, P.C.

The Apprenticeship Program included a kick-off BBQ and a Business Training Seminar giving an overview of business etiquette and expectations. “We are very excited about the launch of our Apprenticeship Program,” said Headmaster John Thornburg. “We believe that partnering with our many amazing alumni helps further differentiate the Malden Catholic experience. We dream of a day when all our students can enjoy an internship experience through one of our many successful alumni.” The inaugural Alumni Hosts were: • Joseph O’Donnell ’62; Founder of Boston Culinary Group • Richard LeBranti ’94; CFP/ Co-Founder of Doble LeBranti Financial Group • Nicolas Gennetti ’02; Corporate – Manager of Operations at The Herb Chambers Companies • Christopher Caprio ’95; CFO of Focus Technology Solutions • Roberto Di Marco ’91; Partner at Foster, Walker & DiMarco, P.C. DI MARCO | SEE PAGE 14 Under mayor’s leadership, Malden receives highest ever bond rating from Moody’s (Editor's Note: this story was submitted by Mayor Gary Christenson's Office) fter a comprehensive review associated with a new debt issuance, ratings agency Moody’s recently provided the City of Malden with a bond rating of Aa3, the highest rating in the history of the City of Malden. A city government’s bond rating determines the cost of borrowing for projects ranging from water main replacements to parks and schools. Borrowing funds is a regular part of the operation of any government entity, and the ability of a city government to maintain a high bond rating is an important indicator of the health and leadership of the municipality. “I’m extremely pleased with the confidence that Moody’s A has shown in the City of Malden. Residents should know that these ratings are only provided after we have in-depth calls with the ratings agency, during which time they probe every aspect of our finances and our management team,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “It truly represents a financial report card for us, and the impact is great. Since I took office, we have been able to increase our rating two steps, saving the city and by extension the residents of Malden millions in borrowing costs” added Christenson. “Our most recent debt had a true interest cost of about 2.4 percent. Being able to borrow funds at these rates really helps us redirect money that would otherwise be spent on interest costs to other important initiatives.” Prices subject to change FLEET
