Region – Darline Yatim, the owner of the Shrewsbury Health & Racquet Club (SHARC), was named as the? recipient of the Corridor Nine Chamber of Commerce “Champions of Education” award at the chamber's March 28 meeting.

According to a press release, SHARC initially formed initial partnerships with the Beal Early Childhood Center and Parker Road Preschool in Shrewsbury as the result of the Corridor 9 School/Business Partnership Committee.

SHARC officials noted they were “grateful that the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce fosters this opportunity for businesses to connect with the schools in our community.? At a time when our schools are experiencing significant budget cuts and program eliminations, local businesses may have resources, staff and creative strategies to assist the schools with academic programs, sponsorships and donations.
