Lydia Ducharme

Boston College, Class of 2014

At Hazen Union High School (Hardwick, VT), Lydia was known for her self-motivation and community-mindedness. One of her recommenders wrote of Lydia, “She talks of possibly becoming a high school chemistry teacher, and I can think of no better role model to put before the next generation of learners.” A natural leader, Lydia was Student Council President, played three varsity-level sports, sang in a local choir, played in the band, volunteered in her school and community, and worked part-time, all while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average. At Boston College, Lydia continued with her volunteer activities as a Student Admission’s Greeter and an active member of Strong Women Strong Girls.  During her junior year, she studied abroad for a semester at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.  With a bachelor’s degree in sociology, and a minor in General Education, Lydia received post-college training as a Match Teacher Resident and Match Corps Tutor in the Teacher Residency Program of Boston Public Schools, followed by an appointment as Operations and Special Projects Coordinator of Community Charter School of Cambridge.
