HAVERHILL’S ERIDANIA NIEVES HONORED AS UNSUNG HEROINE AT STATE HOUSE
Legislative Aide | Office of Representative Andy X. Vargas, Third Essex District
HAVERHILL, MA—State Representative Andy X. Vargas today honored Eridania Nieves of Haverhill by nominating her as an Unsung Heroine of the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women’s class of 2018. Vargas recommended Ms. Nieves for this recognition because of her commitment to Haverhill’s most at risk youth. Ms. Nieves was honored with 130 other Unsung Heroines for her outstanding contributions to Haverhill High students and for committing herself to be a foster parent multiple times. The ceremony took place today, Wednesday, June 20, 2018 from 1-4 p.m., in the Great Hall at the State House in Boston.
Nieves has dedicated her life to serving youth. She has made it a professional and personal goal to positively impact the lives of young people who are most marginalized by society. Her ability to navigate inequities in order to get students in Haverhill on the right track has changed the lives of many. At Haverhill High School she works with students facing difficult academic and personal challenges. However, her mission has also made it into her own home. She has been a foster parent multiple times. Her empathy, dedication, and unwavering optimism in young people has inspired so many in the Haverhill community.
“Ms. Nieves continues to have a profound impact on the lives of Haverhill youth. Through Haverhill High’s Violence Intervention Program (VIP), in her classroom and home,” Representative Vargas said in a statement. “Eridania is blessed with the ability to understand and empathize with young people in a way that has changed their lives for the better.”
The Unsung Heroines are women who don’t make the news, but make the difference. They are the women who use their time, talent and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others and make a difference in their neighborhoods, cities and towns. They are mentors, volunteers and innovators who do what needs to be done without expectations of recognition or gratitude. These women are the glue that keeps a community together and every community is better because of their contribution.
The ceremony included a program emceed by MCSW Chair Margot Parrot, acknowledging each of the 2018 Unsung Heroines, along with remarks from Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, Speaker of the House Robert A. DeLeo, Senate President Harriette L. Chandler and Representative Colleen M. Garry, Co-Chair of the Massachusetts Caucus of Women Legislators.
This event was made possible with the generous support of the following sponsors: Baystate Health, Eastern Bank, Girls Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, Jacqueline’s Gourmet Cookies, Kerry Goodwin Photography, Polar Beverages, and SM Lorusso and Sons, Inc.
The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women is an independent state agency that was legislatively created in 1998 to advance women of the Commonwealth to full equality in all areas of life and to promote their rights and opportunities. The MCSW provides a permanent, effective voice for the women of Massachusetts.
