EASTON -- Superintendent Lisha Cabral is pleased to share that State Sen. Walter Timilty visited Easton Middle School on Friday following the statewide Kick Butts Day to meet with Easton's chapter of The 84 Movement and discuss their youth substance use prevention activities.

On Thursday, March 31, Easton Middle School students attended Kick Butts Day: Youth Day of Action. The virtual event was hosted by The 84 Movement, a statewide movement of youth fighting against the tobacco and vaping industries in Massachusetts.

The 200-plus youth and adults who attend Kick Butts Day from around the Commonwealth work to educate and mobilize young people in their communities around the tactics often used by the tobacco and vaping industries to market to youth. As part of the Kick Butts Day event, 84 Movement chapters meet with their legislators to discuss community concerns, especially those that affect their health and wellness. They also share the work they’re doing in their school and community to address conditions that have an impact on tobacco and nicotine use.

Easton Middle School students Erasmia Zachos, Autumn Gregory, Isis Labady, Rosie Sedita, Ava Labree, Marina Ferrara and Tessa Brussard, and high school students Ava Viera and Kiera Delemere participated in Kick Butts Day this year. Viera and Delemere helped start the Easton chapter of The 84 Movement four years ago.

The students met with State Rep. Carol Doherty virtually Wednesday evening, and applauded the students' passion and commitment. She is also planning to attend one of the upcoming training activities the middle school students will be leading with younger students at the elementary schools.

Sen. Timilty was not able to participate in Kick Butts Day, but visited Easton Middle School Friday to meet with The 84 chapter.

Students talked to Sen. Timilty about their work this year collaborating on school and community projects that are supported through funding from The 84 and the Easton Wings of Hope, Easton's youth substance use prevention coalition.

Work they highlighted included:
  • Creating a bulletin board to acknowledge and support middle school students' resilience in response to challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Implementing a student-led tobacco education program to talk about the risks of tobacco and nicotine use and support healthy brain development. The program was developed by Viera and Delemere.
  • Plans to partner with Easton Recreation this summer to support one of the children’s races in town and promote the benefits of a tobacco-free lifestyle. This project is designed to address conditions that have an impact on youth tobacco and nicotine use - in this case, it is encouraging exercise and other healthy ways of managing stress - and is based on training the students receive from The 84 Movement.
The middle school students also invited The 84 high school chapter and the
Easton Wings of Hope Youth Leadership Team to Friday's event. The high school students also shared their projects with the senator and talked about their experiences on a trip with Easton Wings of Hope to Washington D.C. for the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America (CADCA) National Leadership Forum.

Meray Nemr, a student who presented, described the conference as educational and uplifting. She spoke about how the group took energy, knowledge and skills from the conference and brought it back to Oliver Ames and the Easton Community.

"We are always happy to host Sen. Timilty in the Easton Schools," Superintendent Cabral said. "He has been a firm supporter of our schools, our educators, and our new building project. It is always nice to see him interacting with our students, as well as recognizing their efforts and exceptional projects."

 
Sen. Timilty has supported Easton youth substance use prevention by advocating for and obtaining funds for youth substance use prevention through Easton Wings of Hope. The funds support prevention clubs and community activities, such as CADCA and transportation to help students attend prevention and wellness initiatives. The coalition has also used the funds to support youth meetings, purchase branded materials and collect data through focus groups.

“Sen. Timilty has been a great supporter of youth substance use prevention in Easton and we appreciate his continued advocacy," said Eileen Gardner, RN the Easton Middle School 84 Movement chapter adviser. "He has met with our 84 Movement chapter in the past, and has encouraged our group to attend a state house tour soon to visit the Senate floor."

Easton Middle School’s chapter of The 84 Movement is led by Zachos who is a member of the Middle School Ambassadors. In that role, she represents middle school perspectives in programming decisions and works on engaging middle school youth in The 84 Movement. Easton Middle School joined The 84 Movement in 2019.

Wellness department head Corinne McCarthy, seventh grade wellness teacher Danielle Erikson and Gardner all volunteer their time to support The 84 Movement and its activities. Ed Rand is the 84 Coordinator, and Mary Cole is the Greater Boston Tobacco Prevention Liaison, both of whom provide significant support to the group.

The Easton Wings of Hope Youth Leadership Team includes Viera and Delemere who represent The 84 Movement, and Oliver Ames students Cassie Passias, Nemr, Owen Parker, Jenelle Mello and Joyce Riad. Corinne McCarthy coordinates the high school chapter of The 84 Movement. Kelly Reed and Lisa St. Mary coordinate the Youth Coalition for Easton Wings of Hope.

About The 84 Movement

EASTON -- Superintendent Lisha Cabral and Athletic Director Bill Matthews announce that girls basketball Coach Elaine Clement-Holbrook has retired following close to 50 years coaching athletics at Oliver Ames High School.

She began coaching at OAHS in 1975 as an assistant field hockey coach, assistant basketball coach and the head softball coach. She became the head basketball coach during the 1976-77 season.

Coach Clement-Holbrook's overall record is 733-244. In January 2016, she broke the Massachusetts record for most wins by a girls basketball coach, passing the previous record of 633 wins.

Her teams have qualified for the State Tournament 44 times in 46 years. The team won the championship in 2006 and 2010, and for a third time earlier this month. Other team accomplishments with Coach Clement-Holbrook at the helm include:
  • 19 Hockomock League Titles
  • Four Division 2 South Sectional Championships
  • Two Division 2 Eastern Mass Championships
  • Two-time Division 2 State Semifinalists
  • Three-time Division 2 South Sectional Finalists
  • Four-time Division 2 South Sectional Semifinalists
Coach Clement-Holbrook has been named the Massachusetts Basketball Coaches Association (MBCA) Coach of the Year four times, and recognized by both the MBCA and Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) with Victory Club Awards for each time passing another 100 wins, the latest recognition being for 700 wins in 2020. She has also been recognized as Coach of the Year by the Brockton Enterprise, Boston Globe, Hockomocksports.com, National Federation Interscholastic Coaches Association for District 1-Northeast, and the WBCA-District 1.

During her career, she additionally received the Oswald Tower Award for Professionalism and Ethics in Coaching in 2011, and was selected to be Head Coach of the East for the McDonald’s All American Game in Chicago in 2017.

"Coach Clement-Holbrook will leave an amazing legacy with Oliver Ames athletics. She has mentored and coached hundreds of Oliver Ames students during her career, and has served as an excellent role model demonstrating patience, dedication, enthusiasm and humility," Director Matthews said. "She has achieved many incredible coaching milestones and consistently set her teams up to succeed year in and year out. More importantly, she has instilled character and values in her team members. She will be missed by our student-athletes and athletics staff. We wish her the best in her retirement."

 
Added Superintendent Cabral, "Coach Clement-Holbrook's abilities, experience and dedication are extraordinary. She will leave a lasting legacy and example for others in Easton that is almost impossible to recreate. Her impact is far beyond athletic coaching. Her athletes and students alike have benefitted from her consistent model of courage, passion and excellence that will touch their loves forever. We are fortunate that she will continue teaching at Oliver Ames, but she will be missed tremendously as a member of our coaching staff."


Coach Clement-Holbrook has served as a district representative for the MBCA and as the MBCA's first female president, and on the WBCA High School Coaches Committee. She is an inductee of the Northeast New Agenda Hall of Fame (1992), Dedham High School Athletic Hall of Fame- Inaugural Class (1999), Bridgewater State College Athletic Hall of Fame (2001), New England Basketball Hall of Fame (2006), Massachusetts Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame (2008), and the Oliver Ames High School Athletic Hall of Fame (2018).

She has officially retired from coaching following the conclusion of the 2021-22 season. She is currently continuing to teach classes at Oliver Ames.
