Published April 8, 2021 By MAUREEN DOHERTY NORTH READING — When you’re as actively involved in mentoring students and their activities as North Reading High School Principal Anthony Loprete, it’s pretty hard to have a couple of carloads of out-of-town guests go unnoticed and not spoil the surprise when they arrive on your campus.
