CHARLESTOWN â€” When Janna Eaves was a senior at Chariho High School, she thought sheâ€™d pursue acting as a career, but the encouragement of one teacher changed her life direction.
â€śI was in drama club, I thought I wanted to be an actress for a while â€“ I was really into acting then. It wasnâ€™t until late in my senior year that I thought I should try engineering,â€ť Eaves said.
â€śIt was Lori Kilmartin and her AP (Advanced Placement) chemistry class. She pushed the idea that I was good at it and I could pursue it as a career, and I should try and go farther with science,â€ť she said.
