Voorheesville salutatorian
Wagner sets out for Michigan

By Saranac Hale Spencer

VOORHEESVILLE — Ellen Wagner is eager to explore.

Voorheesville’s salutatorian plans to pursue physics and film — she is interested in the complexity of each.

Wagner likes the math in physics and she’s curious about the universe.  All of the unknowns among the stars are “so fascinating to think about,” she said.

The classes in which she had the most fun during high school were film and communications, she said.

Wagner is interested in the intricate layers that go into making a film.

Accomplished at playing the harp, Wagner has volunteered to play locally, including at St. Matthews Church and senior citizens’ centers.

She was the president of the high school’s chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions and a co-captain of the varsity volleyball team, which won the Colonial Council title and was a semi-finalist at the state tournament this year.

She will attend the University of Michigan as a member of the honors program in the fall.

Of Voorheesville, Wagner said, “The community is so much a part of the school.”
