The town recently honored two local heroes for helping victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and raised money for the daughter of a Weymouth school bus driver who was injured in the attack. The Town Council commended siblings Stephen and Kaitlyn Shinney for running to the marathon finish line and taking action that “directly led to the saving of lives.” Kaitlyn is a Hingham firefighter and paramedic, and her brother has EMT training. Meanwhile, the William Seach Primary School held a fund-raiser and presented an $8,275 check to Mery Daniels to help pay her medical expenses. Daniels, a medical student and the daughter of school bus driver Harry Volmar, lost a leg in the bombing. The Chapman Middle School also is raising money for Daniels. The Seach school is continuing to accept donations, and the contact person is Elizabeth Murray, at elizabeth.murray@weymouthschools.org.
