Newburyport Mayor Sean Reardon and sculptor Jeffrey Briggs

A HUGE congratulations is in order for sculptor Jeffrey Briggs.

Name sound familiar?

That’s because he’s the sculptor for the “Legendary Newburyporters” exhibit at The Custom House Maritime Museum. He recently received the ‘Newburyport Individual Community Service’ award from Mayor Sean Reardon.

This award is given to an individual whose volunteer efforts have touched the lives of others and brightened our city. This award seeks to recognize individuals for the longevity of their work, the impact it has had on the city, and the additional giving it has inspired in others. This could go to those who have worked on issues of housing and food insecurity, those who have served as mentors, coaches, or leaders for youth sports or activities, those who have organized important volunteer initiatives, or others.

We want to extend our gratitude to Jeffrey as well. In addition to being a world-renowned sculptor, he’s always been a friend and supporter of CHMM.
