South Kingstown resident Bogusz perseveres

April 30, 2014

Sylvia Bogusz, a 2007 SKHS graduate, will graduate from URI this spring. Bogusz suffered near-fatal injuries when a drunken driver ran into her June 23, 2007.

KINGSTON - If you look at Sylvia Bogusz’s resume, you might reach the conclusion that she is just another college over-achiever. But you’d just be getting a small part of her story.

That’s because nowhere in the South Kingstown resident’s summary of academic and professional accomplishments does she list her triumphs over near-fatal injuries she suffered when a drunken driver ran into her June 23, 2007. The incident, during which she was struck by a vehicle going 100 miles per hour and subsequently thrown 125 feet, happened just a week after her graduation from South Kingstown High School and a week after she had already begun classes in the University of Rhode Island’s Talent Development Program.
