Today is Wednesday, Jan. 16. Here are five things to know today in Peabody.
- The Tanners are still undefeated in the pool. The Peabody High varsity team vanquished Lynn Classical, 104-74, Tuesday night in Lynn to mark a 5-0-1 record for the season. Next up is Marblehead on Jan. 20. For more highlights from last night's meet, check out the latest report from coach Maureen Shea.
- Project 351: Two Higgins Middle School eighth-graders are participating in this year's Project 351 activities in Boston. Matthew D'Amato and Katie Wallace will serve as Peabody's ambassadors in the service program with Gov. Deval Patrick and both were nominated by Higgins Principal Todd Bucey. Bucey praised both students for their "compassion, commitment, humility, kindness and generosity of spirit." The program runs for a year and kicks off Jan. 26.
