40 Under Forty

Talesha Saint-Marc ’06 was recently named one of the New Hampshire Union Leader’s “40 Under Forty.”  While at Franklin Pierce, Saint-Marc participated in everything from peer advising to student government. As a political science major, she developed a strong connection with Professor Frank Cohen who inspired her with his passion. She remembers what it felt like to attend a rural campus, away from the familiar culture of home. “I went to high school in NH, but for some of the other minority students coming from more urban environments, it was a more of a culture-shock. The college made strong efforts to help students learn about differences and promote issues of interest to minority students.”
