We congratulate junior Connor Farney of Mattapoisett for being selected by the Old Rochester Regional High School faculty and staff as the January Student of the Month. Connor was a member of the cross-country team this fall and had a very successful first season and now plans to run spring track. He has been on the honor roll this year even earning high honors in Term 2. Connor has been working part-time filming local meetings for ORCTV. Connor currently plans to attend a 4-year college and major in zoology.
