Peter Swanson, Former Teacher and Department Chair at Quincy High School
Robert Czerwinski, Acting Fire Chief in Pittsfield, Massachusetts
During the summer he and his crew cleaned up our science facilities and then went to the other High School and the middle schools to clean up there. Dwight and I developed a wonderful professional relationship. I advocate for his program when attending conferences.
Because of Dwight's commitment to Green Chemistry, he helped us get funding for a BeyondBenign summer program. Never in my thirty-year career have I ever been involve in such a powerful program. Half of the students were going into their junior or senior years and the others were incoming freshmen. The impact on those seniors has been incredible as they all headed of to college in some phase of science or technology. One of the seniors is at Boston College as a freshman and chemistry has been a breeze for her. A second girl is at Simmons College and the Department Chair at Simmons told me that they have never had a freshman so on track in chemistry since he has been there. Our incoming freshmen at the time will now be juniors. They are all at the top of the class.
