Letter to the Editor: High school renovation essential

1 min read

A vote to authorize the full renovation and expansion of Mt. Blue High School is not simply an investment in excellent education facilities; it is also a bold step toward providing access to quality health care for you and your family.

As President and Chief Executive Office of Franklin Memorial Hospital and Franklin Community Health Network, one of my responsibilities is to search for and hire the best health care professionals available in order to maintain or expand services for residents in our area. Our ability to recruit highly qualified physicians, nurses, pharmacists, technologists, and other much-sought-after medical specialists is often contingent upon the attractiveness of our local schools.

During candidate interviews, the first question often asked by these professionals is related to the educational system available for their young families were they to relocate to this area. If we at the hospital are going to be able to continue to provide you with the state-of-the-art, cost-effective health care you deserve, we need to work together to make available the best possible, state-of-the-art, educational experience for future generations.

Please join me on September 15 in voting to authorize the design, construction, and equipping of a new Mt. Blue High School Learning Campus.


Rebecca Ryder, President & CEO
Franklin Memorial Hospital
