Meaghan is a senior at Harwich High School. She would like to attend Boston College in the fall as a political science major. Meaghan is the president of the National Honor Society and ranks third in her class academically. She combines an intense academic drive with a warm personality, and excels outside the academic arena by being a member of the select choir, captain of the sailing team, member of the mock trial team and an accomplished violinist. She has been able to take four trips to Ireland, and especially enjoyed that time spent with extended family. Her community service has included the Walk for Hunger, and Cranberry Harvest Pancake Breakfast. As quoted in her essay, "My red hair is from my grandmother, my singing voice from my Great-Aunt Kathleen, my love of ice cream is from my grandfather and my determination is from all my relatives that were brave enough to start their lives in a new country."
