Rindge local Helene Rogers received the Salutatorian for the graduating class of 2016.
After years of accounting, Rogers realized that she was not truly enjoying her occupation. She decided to return to school to receive a major in Biology.
“I came back to do what I love,” said Rogers. “I didn’t get a degree in bio when I was younger because I didn’t want to cut up any animals,” Rogers giggled in regards to having to dissect animals in the biology courses.
Earning the Salutatorian position signifies the second highest ranking in this years graduating class. After earning this position, Rogers said, “It feels great, this is something I have wanted to do my whole life.”
As Rogers’ time comes to an end here at Franklin Pierce, she said the students are what made her experience great. “I really enjoyed the students so much,” said Rogers.
A tip to other students on campus, Rogers said, “Do your best. You only really have one shot.”
