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

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:

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Some will tell you that you learned everything you needed to know in kindergarten, but Mount Greylock Regional School's 2017 class speaker had a different idea.   "When we were younger, most of us read Aesop's fable about the tortoise and the hare," Josh Narey reminded his classmates at Saturday morning's graduation. "The moral of the story is: ‘Slow and steady wins the race.'   "And it's a load of crap.   "That guy Aesop was a complete clown. Slow and steady does not win the race. It loses it. Best wins the race. You have to put everything you've got into everything you

LENOX, Mass. — Jeremy Patterson admires the traditional college graduate, the ones who had the foresight and commitment to delve right into higher education.   Patterson is not a traditional graduate. At age 26, neither he nor his wife had even graduated high school. He was out of work and trying to care for their three children. One day in 2007, they packed everything they owned into a 1992 Oldsmobile and left their rural home in Florida, driving to a new home in the Berkshires.   "We were petrified. While staying with a friend, I found work and in a month we had gathered enough money to rent the apartment below him," Patterson said.    The
