NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The McCann Technical School class of 2017 was encouraged to live in the moment and to be brave in the face of failure.   School Committee Chairman Thomas Mahar said he'd had a hard time thinking of what advice to give the school's 55th graduating class that hadn't been said before.   "I realized I didn't have anything new to say," Mahar told the 112 graduates seated in the Amsler Campus Center gym at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. "Then it struck me, you don't hear much about failure."   Satisfaction comes from doing your best, he said, by reaching deep inside and pulling off something beyond

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock School Building Committee last week voted to authorize a quarter-million dollar change order that, as written, did not sit well with several members of the committee.   At issue was an undisclosed modification to the $65 million addition/renovation project related to building security. Taking advantage of an exception to the commonwealth's Open Meeting Law, the committee held a one-hour executive session at the start of its June 1 meeting.   It then voted in public on the monetary impact of the issue it discussed behind closed doors. And although the committee did not reveal exactly what the issue was, at least one member had

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Williams College's grandest occasion, in front of its biggest crowd and surrounded by the trappings of pomp and circumstance, the student speakers at Sunday morning's commencement exercises focused on the mundane.   The tone was set by Jeffrey Rubel of Dallas, Texas, selected by the members of the class of 2017 as the day's first speaker.   Rubel framed his speech around the metaphor of sea glass.   "When broken glass first falls into the ocean, it has sharp edges," Rubel said. "But it's in the sea, a world of waves, of currents and of sediment transport. And those forces polish that glass, taking it from

ADAMS, Mass. — The 16 college-bound Berkshire Arts and Technology Public Charter School graduates were charged Saturday with taking control of their own narrative.   After reading the state's profile of the school's 10th graduating class, teacher Sean Johnson explained that in his opinion, this class was a group of survivors.   "That is the state of Massachusetts' story that is told by a spreadsheet but that is not your story. Let me tell you another story about the class of 2017," he told the graduates and their families during graduation exercises in the school's gym. "When I think of the class, I think of one word:
