ROCHESTER — There’s no shortage of clichés about education and opportunity, particularly in college recruitment campaigns and idiom-riddled graduation speeches.
Forget them all, say the 13 students in a new program in Rochester. They believe their groundbreaking new program — a pilot education–work partnership between Spaulding High School, the Richard W. Creteau Regional Technology Center, Safran Aerospace Composites and Great Bay Community College — will completely blaze new paths for students unlike anyone has ever seen in New Hampshire.
“This program’s going to show us what we can do and give us options,” said Mike Lovely, 16, who will be a high school senior in the fall. “I want to see all of my options before I stick with one thing. I don’t want to end up hating my life sitting in an office. This is a wicked good opportunity for that.”
