CHARLESTOWN â When Janna Eaves was a senior at Chariho High School, she thought sheâd pursue acting as a career, but the encouragement of one teacher changed her life direction.
âI was in drama club, I thought I wanted to be an actress for a while â I was really into acting then. It wasnât until late in my senior year that I thought I should try engineering,â Eaves said.
âIt 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 she said.
