Clark, National Medalist Gendron Are NVTHS Students of the Month
WESTFORD -- Nashoba Valley Technical High School recently announced that Brianna Clark of Shirley and Jason Gendron of Dracut are July’s Students of the Month.
Brianna Clark, daughter of Kenneth and Tanya Clark, recently completed her freshman year in the Hospitality Management program. She is a high-honors student and played basketball and soccer for the Vikings. She is interested in working in the hotel or hospitality industry after she graduates from Nashoba Tech.
Brianna was nominated by two teachers.
Art Instructor Robin Monaco wrote: “Brianna is an awesome student who can take any assignment from concept to completion with very little supervision. Her artwork is amazing. She puts her best foot forward whenever you give her an assignment. She is also respectful, kind to her teachers as well as her classmates, and a great student to have. We are lucky to have Brianna in our school. She reminds us of why we became teachers.”
Hospitality Management instructor Jeremy Bussiere added: “Brianna is respectful, kind, shows leadership qualities, is always willing to help others and takes pride in her work.”
Jason Gendron, son of Dan and Kat Gendron, recently finished his junior year at Nashoba Tech, and he did it in fine fashion -- earning a silver medal at the SkillsUSA National Conference in Information Technology Services. Jason earned his way to the National Conference by winning a gold medal at the State Competition. Before that, he had won a silver medal at the District Competition.
Jason is a high-honors student in the Engineering Academy at Nashoba Tech and has been inducted into both the National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society. Jason is also taking advantage of Nashoba Tech’s Dual Enrollment program, which allows qualified upperclassmen to attend college full time to attain credits toward a college degree. He completed his first year at Middlesex Community College studying Information Technology and Cybersecurity, and is on track to graduate with his Associate’s degree in addition to his high-school diploma and technical certificate next spring.
Jason is a member of Nashoba Tech’s FIRST Robotics team, Math Club and Astronomy Club, and has volunteered each of the past three summers to help the school’s Technology Department prepare for the next school year.
He was nominated by the Student Services Department, represented by Guidance Counselor Aaron Spencer, who wrote: “Although Jason is a Dual Enrollment student, he is still a big part of the Nashoba Tech community. At the conclusion of the college semester, Jason has chosen to volunteer his time with the Nashoba Tech Technology Department to help prepare for the end of the school year and summer projects.”
