Westborough Hometown Video – James

We had a great summer working with our Westborough TV summer interns, and as has become tradition, each intern created a great “My Hometown Video.”  These videos offer a tour through Westborough, offering people a quick view of what life in Westborough is like from the perspective of one of our WHS grads.  This video was recorded and edited by James Coffey, WHS Class of 2017.  His video showcased Westborough and some of the experiences he had that made it a special place to grow up.

Thanks to James for all of his contributions this summer.  James focused most of his efforts on capturing Recreation Department camps – recording and editing many activities and then creating a Summer 2017 Yearbook for the Rec Dept.   James was great to work with – a big help at our video camps, efficient in his editing and cranking out clips from the Rec Camps, and creative in putting his videos together. Perhaps most importantly, however, he laughed at almost all Tim’s jokes.  We’re going to miss him and wish him the best as enters his freshman year at Boston College!  Go Eagles!

    THANK YOU, James Coffey! I raised my family in Westborough but moved away after retirement. Your film brought back so many memories…almost brought me to tears. You did a great job of the general tour. You showed so many of the spots that made Westborough a special place to raise children. I wish you well in your future after Westborough.
