Jun 21, 2021

MATTAPOISETT — Seven students from Old Rochester Regional High School’s class of 2022 attended the American Legion & American Legion Auxiliary’s annual Boys & Girls State program last week.

The program takes students from around the Commonwealth and brings them together to study civics and politics with the goal of promoting healthier civic participation and educating the students on the important roles they will play in their careers.

The seven students who participated in the program as representatives of the school were: Edward Gonet IV, Samuel Harris, Isabella Hunter, John Kassabian, Amaya McLeod, Tavish Nunes, and Tyler Trudeau.

Of the group, two were selected from among 200 students to serve in the program’s highest offices. Gonet IV was elected Governor of Massachusetts Boys State and McLeod was elected Auditor of Massachusetts Girls State.
