Hello, my name is Joshua Farmer, and I am from Boston, MA. My father, Jason Farmer, has been a proud member of Local 534 for over 22 years. I graduated from Saugus High School with honors and was ranked 11th in my class. When I wasn’t studying, I had the ability to lead my grade as Class President. I worked to improve my community through several social justice organizations as well. I served as the Treasurer for the Young Feminist Alliance Club and for the Students in Action Club. I was elected Committee Chairperson for the National Honor Society and participated in the Massachusetts GSA Leadership Council.
In the fall I will be attending McGill University, majoring in Political Science. I aim to continue my involvement with service and activism to incite positive social change throughout my college and career life. Thank you to the OPCMIA and Patrick D. Finley Scholarship Foundation for seeing value in my application and investing in my education.
