Boston – For the past six months, Senator Richard J. Ross was pleased to have Natick resident Matt Lebowitz intern in his State House office.

Matt Lebowitz grew up in Natick playing sports with the Natick travel soccer, basketball, and baseball teams. He graduated from Brimmer and May High School and currently attends Northeastern University. Matt is expected to graduate next May with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Business Administration, hoping to pursue a career in either the fields of business or economics.

“Matt is a very bright individual who always had a keen interest in the daily operations of state government and pertinent legislation,” said Senator Ross. “He was an invaluable asset to the office and his hometown should be very proud of what he has accomplished.”

Throughout the year, Senator Richard J. Ross hosts interns in his State House office from across the Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex District. The internship program allows for college students to gain experience working for the General Court and acquire a better understanding of matters impacting their towns and the Commonwealth as a whole.

Please contact the office of Senator Ross with any questions or concerns at (617) 722-1555 or Richard.Ross@masenate.gov.

With the owner of Wrentham Royalty, Megan Choate at King Philip Regional High School.

Megan Choate is a busy senior at King Philip Regional High School and headed to college in the fall, but that has not stopped her from opening and operating her own small business, Wrentham Royalty.

Established in October of last year, Wrentham Royalty is a local entertainment company that offers princess parties to children of all ages across southeastern Massachusetts. Being an avid drama student who enjoys working with children, Megan was inspired to make her passion for the arts into a business reality, and it has been growing steadily ever since.

With seven characters to choose from and more coming soon, Choate and her staff help to liven up countless events, holiday gatherings, and birthday parties by bringing the performance to you. Additionally, Megan has been working hard to foster strong partnerships with other businesses in the area, having recently been contracted by Patriot Place and The Proctor Mansion Inn in Wrentham for various special occasions.

At such a young age, Megan’s perseverance and drive are truly admirable. I was impressed by her unique and creative small business which adds a great service to Wrentham and the surrounding communities. I am eager to witness Wrentham Royalty’s continued growth and hope that her story encourages other students her age to take risks.

If you would like your business to be a part of the Small Business Spotlight or would like to nominate a small business, email Senator Ross at richard.ross@masenate.gov.
