The Patrick Administration announced on June 4 that the state has reached a tentative settlement agreement in the Hutchinson case.

The Hutchinson case was filed in early 2007 by five individuals and the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts, in Westboro, on behalf of all persons who acquired brain injuries after the age of 22 and were living in nursing facilities or were at risk of entering nursing facilities. The suit claimed the state did not provide adequate community care alternatives so that individuals with acquired brain injuries could live in the community.

Under the settlement, the state will create a new home and community-based services program to be managed by the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission. As part of this initiative and within three years following federal approval, the state will offer community residential and nonresidential services for up to 300 persons with acquired brain injuries who are in nursing facilities and rehabilitation hospitals.

The following students from Northboro were awarded degrees from Nichols College during commencement ceremonies on May 10:

Jason Freitas received a bachelor of arts degree; Ana Marie Comas received a master of business administration degree; and Meghan McManus received a bachelor of science degree in business administration, cum laude.
