FRAMINGHAM – District 5 School Committee member Noval Alexander was at the State House in Boston this morning, Feb. 4, to be honored for his work in the passage of the new Fuller Middle School project.
Alexander, who was elected to the new 9-member City of Framingham School Committee in 2017, also serves on the Framingham School Building Committee. He was also a very active member of the Yes For Fuller! campaign, which advocated for voters to support a new $98 million middle school in District 5.
Rep. Jack Patrick Lewis nominated Alexander for the award.
Lewis wrote Alexander was a “leading advocate for the successful passing of Framingham’s Yes For Fuller campaign, securing the necessary local funding to build a new local middle school. Noval, father of two and a Framingham native, relies on hos selfless leadership style and determined perseverance in all that he does.”
Noval is a Framingham South High School graduate. Framingham South eventually became Fuller Middle School.
Alexander was one of dozens of “unsung heroes” who were honored as part of the “Black Excellence on the Hill,” celebration hosted by the Massachusetts Black and Latino Legislative Caucus.
The event, part of Black History Month, celebrates elected officials, neighbors, business owners, and community stakeholders’ achievement in the Commonwealth.”
Two others with ties to Framingham were also honored today there were Rev. J. Anthony Lloyd of the Greater Framingham Church, who was nominated by Sen. Karen Spilka, and Mira Donaldson, President of the Black Student Union at Framingham High School, who was nominated by Rep. Maria Robinson.
