SOUTHBRIDGE — He comes from a well-known local family and has a master's degree in education, but David DiGregorio sees his role on the School Committee as being that of "everyman."

"I do not perceive myself as being one of the stronger School Committee members," he admitted. "I perceive myself as being the common man asking questions the average person needs to ask."

On Tuesday, June 30, DiGregorio will seek his third term on the panel, facing fellow incumbent John Jovan and newcomers Martena Shea, Sean Gilliard and Michael Murray for two seats.

Unlike what some have said at recent meetings, DiGregorio sees the future of Southbridge education as being anything but a test-focused "back to basics." Instead, he'd rather see more flexibility and "stimulating the students to learn."
