Grad pays school a visit
DERRY — Pinkerton Academy and Harvard graduate Katie O’Brien returned to her alma mater recently with a message of encouragement and enlightenment about succeeding in school and life.
The Class of 2000 graduate along with colleague Hunter Maats came to Pinkerton to visit classrooms and talk about their new book “The Straight A Conspiracy: Your Secret Guide to Ending the Stress of School.”
After speaking throughout the day with students and faculty, O’Brien and Matts went on to a book signing event at Barnes and Noble bookstore in Manchester.
