Pepperell’s Tracie Ezzio honored as Massachusetts Unsung Heroine

Scan_20160715Wednesday, June 22, 2016 Pepperell native Tracie Ezzio, was honored as one of Massachusetts Unsung Heroines at the Massachusetts State House. The honor is bestowed upon a “woman who makes outstanding contributions to their organizations and communities.” The Commission on the Status of Women makes their selection base on nominations by the community’s state legislators.

Tracie is the founder of the Pepperell Family Pharmacy, which opened in 2008. Not only has Tracie committed herself to a career of giving back through her Pharmacy, but she lives a life of service. Her reputation, working earnestly to better those who surround her is known throughout the community. Tracie’s work is a cornerstone to her character, and the operations of her Pharmacy. As a testament to her dedication Tracie knows all of her customers by name, and stays extra hours to help with emergencies. In addition, Tracie engages with her customers to find affordable payment plans for necessary medication.  Tracie also sits on the Economic Development Advisory Committee, working to foster healthy relationships within the town and balance economic growth and quality of life for the town of Pepperell. Tracie has also joined forces with parents from the North Middlesex School District to raise awareness of the dangers of prescription drug abuse throughout the community. Their organization, NM Cares, recently received their official non-profit designation from the application fee donated by Tracie. She knows the heart aches and detriments from addiction, and the rippling effects it has caused. NM Cares hopes to educate school children with some recent grant money in hopes that spreading awareness will be part of the solution.

 

Thank you Tracie, for all that you do.

The Office of State Representative Sheila Harrington.
