BOSTON – State Representative Joan Meschino (D-Hull) was honored to attend the fifteenth
annual Unsung Heroines celebration at the Massachusetts State House. Through the Unsung
Heroine award, the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women honors women in the
Commonwealth who work hard every day to serve their communities, dedicating their time and
effort to the betterment of all of our lives across the state. This award is intended to celebrate
women whose work often goes unrecognized, for their leadership and volunteerism.
Christine Murphy of Cohasset was nominated and honored with the Unsung Heroine award by
Representative Meschino. Ms. Murphy has significantly contributed to the community, serving
as a board member of the Cohasset Social Service League, where she worked to establish a brand
new senior center in the town. Following this, Ms. Murphy turned her attention towards the
addiction crisis, establishing the Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition and designing programming
dedicated to promoting drug prevention among local youth. Ms. Murphy was also responsible for
securing a grant from Drug-Free Communities, allowing her to hire a full time professional staff
to manage Safe Harbor Cohasset.
“I am proud to see Christine Murphy celebrated as an Unsung Heroine,” said Representative
Meschino. “She has done so much to promote the betterment of Cohasset through her
community initiatives and could not be more deserving of this title.”
