Commuter Rail to Honor Kayla Harrison
The Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company will honor local gold medalist Kayla Harrison.
The following press release was issued by Mills Public Relations Representative Tom Halkin:
On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company honored local Olympic heroes Aly Raisman and Kayla Harrison, by unveiling two special coaches on the MBTA’s commuter rail fleet.
One coach, which will travel the Needham commuter rail line, will feature a banner with a message of congratulations to Needham’s own Aly Raisman, who captured two gold medals and a bronze medal at the recently concluded 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
The second coach, which will travel the Newburyport/Rockport line, will celebrate the accomplishments of Marblehead resident Kayla Harrison, who became the first American to win an Olympic gold medal in judo.
Each coach will carry its banner for approximately one week.
