Cavalcade of Honors for Exeter High School - The Senior Honors Banquet for the Top Ten Students celebrated the accomplishments and successes of these highest ranking members of the Class of 2013: Emily Avery (Valedictorian; Princeton University); Chandra Boudreau (Wellesley College); Coren Guen (Washington and Lee University); William Knutson (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute); Nora McCleary (American University); Melissa Murray (University of New Hampshire); Allison Nash (University of New Hampshire); Ann Palladino (New York University); Kelly Poncelet (University of Vermont); and Rebecca Salzman (Salutatorian; Northeastern University).

According to a recent issue of US News and World Report, EHS was listed as the 7th best high school in New Hampshire. Using a wide variety of criteria including ranking on state and Advance Placement tests, a college readiness index, percentage of graduates and college acceptances, over 21,000 high schools in the United States were rated. The American Institutes for Research in Washington, DC helped to collect and analyze data for this project.

The National History Day teams, under the direction of teacher Molly Stevenson, presented their work at the Exeter Historical Society’s Youth Night recently. Meredith and Guinevere Gilman performed “CANDLES: Turning Humanity’s Dark Evil into Courageous Light.” Ainsley Katz, Ben Paquin, and Chandra Boudreau showed their film No Clear Victor: Nuclear Diplomacy from 1945 to Today. Exeter Town Manager and EHS 1987 graduate, Russ Dean, was the evening’s featured speaker.

Freshman Anna Sang was selected as the April “Francis Wayland Parker Scholar of the Month.” This honor is named after a New Hampshire native who revolutionized education in the 19th century. Anna was featured recently on the front page of the Union Leader and recognized for her work at the annual dinner held to honor this year’s recipients from around the state.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
