RMHS High Five Club
Celebrating Excellence in the Class of 2019
Megan Coram is recognized for her commitment to excellence in all that she takes on, from academic work, to artistic exploration, to personal inquiry.
Megan has achieved at the highest level in the classrooms of RMHS, often taking the most challenging classes and excelling in those classes. Her efforts have won her several recognitions. Last year she was inducted into the National Honor Society and she was recognized at the Underclassmen Awards Assembly with the prestigious Harvard Book Award. Megan’s most impressive academic recognition may be her latest. She was recently recognized as a National Merit Scholarship Finalist, one of only 15,000 high school seniors across the country to receive the distinction. This respected designation makes her eligible for a number of possible scholarship opportunities as she moves on to college from RMHS.
Megan plans to study architecture or engineering in college, both pursuits that would call upon her talents in math, science, and the arts. Artistic pursuits have been a passion of Megan’s throughout her time at RMHS. She cites Mr. Radvany’s Studio Art class from her junior year as her favorite class at RMHS so far. And, in her after-school hours, she has cherished her time working with the RMHS Drama Club both on and behind the stage. Some highlights include playing the role of Berthe in the musical Pippin and helping to create some of the more intricate costumes used over the last few years in her work as part of the wardrobe crew.
Lastly, Megan has sought enrichment opportunities inside and outside RMHS. She loved her experience with the French exchange program, as she both hosted a student and visited France. She has also sought enrichment opportunities during the summer. In the summer of 2018, she took courses in 3D animation, gender studies, DIY crafts, and graphic design at a summer school program hosted at Yale University. And in the summer of 2017, she took courses in the IDtech program at Wesleyan University.
Congratulations, again, to Megan for the achievement and love of learning that have marked her years at RMHS.
