STURBRIDGE — TRHS seniors Abbie Gregory and Sarah Bessette took advantage of the many arts programs their school has to offer, as both are musically inclined students who enjoy performing.

Gregory, who was selected as a TRHS Student of the Month in December, has been active in school plays and productions, performing this year as Mama in "Chicago" and as Ms. Gibbs in "Our Town." She is also a member of the Feels Like Monday web series show that was filmed at TRHS, as well as a comedy group based in Springfield.

When asked which teacher has inspired her most, Gregory replied, "Ms. Bousquet — she's a champ in every sense of the word. She has been my cross-country coach, and she is also the reason I'm interested in neuroscience. She is one of the best role models I could ask for."

Gregory enjoys playing the guitar and writing music, but her main focus is on theater. She is involved with Greene Room Productions, a group with which she recently finished up a production of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" in Northampton. She will attend Christopher Newport University in Virginia next fall as an Interdisciplinary Studies major. She plans to focus on neuroscience and theater with a minor in leadership, and she hopes to one day enter the field of expressive arts therapy.

Gregory likened her experience at TRHS to a ride on the "Bizarro" roller coaster at Six Flags New England.
