Ingrid Kendall
Moderator
 

I have been the Moderator for High Street Church since February of 2019. The Moderator’s role is to facilitate and coordinate the activities of Church Council which in turn oversees all aspects of church life and worship. High Street has been a church home for my family for many years and now serving as Moderator, provides me with the opportunity to give back and participate even more fully in this church family of faith and fellowship.

 
 
Karen Choate
Church Clerk
 

I have been at High Street all my life. I took over as Clerk in 2014. The Clerk keeps the minutes of the governing body the Church Council and often is the signature on formal documents. I guess my “what motivates me” would be “Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.”

Lee Upton
Pantry Coordinator
 

Retired in 2011 after 44 years in industry, government scientific research and academia with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Retired as the Deputy Director of the MIT Lincoln Laboratory focusing on issues of national security.

Joined the High Street Food Pantry and in short order stepped into the position of the Pantry Coordinator leading an all-volunteer group of people ranging in age from high school to senior retired. The pantry, as a mission outreach of five churches, provides healthy food, products for personal hygiene, mittens, hats, children’s books, Christmas stockings for children and gift cards for over 200 families at Thanksgiving and Easter.

Inspired by the realization that the only way to break the cycle of poverty is through youth education. Hungry children have great difficulty with school and social pursuits. The pantry is making a difference through meeting client nutritional needs and giving families much needed relief and assistance.
