CONCORD, NH – A Kennett High Senior got to fill Governor Chris Sununu’s shoes yesterday.
Molly Robert, of North Conway, was the governor for the day yesterday after winning an essay contest earlier this year.
The contest was a part of the Women’s History Month celebrations in New Hampshire.
Governor Chris Sununu told the Conway Daily Sun that he was pleased with how the day went and that he was very impressed with Robert. The Governor said that Robert “provided some awesome insight on a variety of issues that we were able to tackle; everything from school safety and the opioid crisis to communications interoperability.”
Robert’s day consisted of a tour of the Bridges House with Sununu, getting to sit in on an executive Councilor’s meeting along side District 1 Councilor Joe Kenney, and even take a photo op with John Fuller 4th graders who happened to be getting a tour of the state house that day.
Robert told the Sun that observing the Executive Councilors meeting was her favorite part of the day.
Robert also got to enjoy lunch with the Governor and Kennett High Alum Speaker of the New Hampshire House Gene Chandler. Chandler told the Sun “I think Molly is a great recipient of the award…She did an outstanding job. I have a hunch she may be back here one day as governor for more than just one day.”
Robert is Kennett High’s senior class president and will be going to St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. this fall.
