EXETER â Andrew Treat spent 18 months at Franklin Pierce University, in New Hampshire, before deciding he needed a change.
âI left to find myself,â says the 22-year-old Cranston native who grew up in East Greenwich and graduated from East Greenwich High School. After majoring in radio broadcasting and information technology, it turned out that his true calling was as a first responder.
âIn college, theyâd started a volunteer fire department on campus. I hadnât thought of that but one of my roommates mentioned it and said âWow, this is really cool!ââ
