MacMullin Named Teen Center Coordinator

The long-time resident has been at the forefront of the project since it was announced earlier this year.

Note: The following was submitted by the city of Malden. 

The City of Malden is excited to announce that longtime Malden Resident Catherine MacMullin has been hired as the Malden Teen Enrichment Center Coordinator. Cathy has long been active in Malden working with variouscommunity and youth programs as well as charitable groups.

Last year, Cathy led a group of Malden residents to examine and explore positive solutions to issues faced by teens. Cathy teamed with the Malden YMCA, YWCA, and the Partnership for Community Schools to discuss issues, recruit volunteers, raise funds and met with teens for input. Through this work, the need for a program for teens was realized.

Because of the hard work and dedication of many, the Teen Enrichment Center is scheduled to open late this fall and will provide various fun and recreational activities in a safe, supervised, enjoyable environment for Malden teens.

“I couldn’t be happier that Cathy will be filling this very important position,” said Mayor Christenson. “I look forward to working with Cathy and I know our teens will be in good hands.”

“Our group has worked very hard in getting the Teen Enrichment Center to become a reality,” said City Councillor Greg Lucey. “With Cathy on board, we are going to get our doors open and start serving the over 3,000 teens in our City.” Councillor Lucey is a board member of the Malden Teen Enrichment Center.

Annie..I hope you do not mean the kids are scumbags Its not their fault. My cousin works for DSS and he has mentioned that many Parents who grew up smokin the weed are the ones who do not care about there kids. He has gone into homes where both parents are so high on drugs they coulnd't even stand up. They were not aware what was happening. Its a loosing battle cause they end up giving the kids back. What kind of life is that? You have to walk in that kids shoes. If it were you or me we would rebell too. People here find it so easy to bash and tear down but maybe its time to look on both sides of the fence.

I totally understand your frustration, Paul. It seems that some parents just don't care anymore. (Speaking of frustration, why do I have to re-type my comments after I sign in?)

David: No, I don't mean the kids are the scumbags...but they will grow into them if we don't show them some things can be different than where they come from. Some kids just don't know any better than what they see at home. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well..this is the one holiday it doesn't matter what your religious persuasion is, we all can take a moment to count our blessings.
