Roger is a 2017 graduate of Cheshire High School and will attend Princeton University in the fall. He plans to major in political science.
Roger's many accomplishments at Cheshire High School included serving as Vice President of the Cheshire High School Young Democrats, Editor in Chief of the Rampage (the Cheshire High School newspaper), and Class Treasurer. He was also a member of the Math League and Science Bowl, and served as National Finance Director for the High School Democrats of America.
As if these accomplishments weren't impressive enough, Roger threw himself into his work with the Cheshire High School Young Democrats. Roger made thousands of phone calls and canvassed hundreds of houses for local Democratic candidates. He organized a political rally at the Cheshire Senior Center, and also organized a field trip to New Hampshire for Young Dems to meet with presidential candidates during the 2016 primary season. Last summer, he worked as a finance fellow in the Connecticut Democratic Party headquarters in Hartford to assist the executive director in reaching out to donors and planning two fundraising receptions. In the fall, he interned on Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty's reelection campaign, and organized a forum at Cheshire High School between Esty and her opponent.
The Cheshire Democratic Women’s Club congratulates Roger, and wishes to thank the Cheshire community for supporting the club’s spring luncheon, which provides funding for the annual scholarship for deserving Cheshire students.
