Lindsay McAuliffe of Brookline, currently a junior theater major at Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, was part of a select group of students chosen to participate in the Spoleto Study Abroad 2013 Arts & Humanities immersion program in Spoleto, Italy this summer. The educational journey featured a rich and dynamic curriculum in the arts. McAuliffe, who participated in the vocal music program, participated in excursions to cultural centers such as Florence, Assisi, Tivoli, Siena, and was able to experience significant artistic, cultural, and historic treasures first-hand.
At Walnut Hill, McAuliffe is an active member of the student body. As co-head of the Community Service Association she led classmates in an effort to decorate and distribute 150 bicycle helmets to local children at Natick Days, a daylong community event. She has also founded a co-ed a capella group called the Mixed Nuts, open to students from all majors at Walnut Hill.
