Meet Will Minsinger, a 2002 graduate of Randolph Union High School.
Will is recently married and lives in Lebanon, NH. He works at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center as a Test Analyst in Clinical Applications on the Electronic Medical Record System. Following graduation from RUHS he attended the Rochester Institute of Technology where he studied Software Engineering.
“I have to say I’ve really enjoyed my career in Software Engineering,” Will said, “and my plan right now is to continue developing that career. But I’ve also always had a passion for learning and expanding my knowledge in a wide range of subjects. One of those subjects is history, and in 2011 I went back to school to pursue that interest, specifically military history. I earned my Master’s in Military History at Norwich University in 2013 and eventually I’d like to do some writing in that field.”

But I think more than any specific class or skill, what my teachers at RUHS helped instill in me was a desire to learn, explore, and expand my knowledge.”
“That desire to learn and explore has certainly helped me in my current career. Software Engineering is a constantly changing field and I’ve probably learned more since I left college than I learned while I was in college, just to keep up with t
“If I were going to offer today’s RUHS students some advice, I’d encourage them to put as much time and effort into their learning as they can. Take advantage of all the resources they can. Expand their knowledge base. I’d tell them to think of their high school years as an opportunity to invest in their future. The more they invest now, the more they will reap later in life. RUHS offers students a great many resources and opportunities, but it’s up to them to make the most of those opportunities.”he latest developments!”
