Noah uses music and metta to brighten the lives of senior citizens. At just seventeen, he understands the importance of giving back. “I was inspired by my older brother who is a Nurse Practitioner working in a hospice unit. I learned the end of life is just as important as the beginning. I realized the relationship between memory and music, and people are able to remember the beautiful events of their life through familiar music.”

Judy Bass, Communications Specialist at the high school, nominated Simms saying, ”Noah is a superb honor roll student, and is mature, poised, friendly, responsible, capable, dedicated, compassionate, industrious, and truly caring. He has a sophisticated grasp of end-of-life issues that is remarkable for someone of his age. He recently got a puppy that he brings to the nursing homes and assisted living facilities he visits, thus enhancing the value of the time he spends with the residents. When Noah talks about what he does, his face lights up, and you can see how much it means to him. He is an exceptional young man. I have no doubt that he will use the education he received at Blue Hills to do more great things in the future.”
