WESTFORD — Alexis Hendrickson of Westford and Bryson Tang of Pepperell, both seniors who will graduate on June 3, have been selected as April’s Students of the Month at Nashoba Tech.

Alexis is employed through Nashoba Tech’s Cooperative Education program at Innovations Salon in Boxborough. She plans to attend Mt. Wachusett Community College, then perhaps open her own salon.

Alexis was nominated by English instructor Bruce Sullivan, who wrote: “Alexis is an outstanding student both in Cosmetology and in Advanced Placement English. Her latest AP Literature essay on cruelty in literature was outstanding, and her senior research paper on how hair coloring and styling can impact one's entire image is very interesting and well researched.”

Cosmetology Instructor Donna McMahon also had high praise, adding: “Lexi is an outstanding student who works very hard to create high-quality work. She is a kind friend to others, loves to joke and is very respectful to her teachers. I know that she will do wonderful things in her life.”

Bryson Tang, son of Mike and Meg Tang, is a senior in the Engineering Academy. He is a high-honors student and has been named valedictorian of the Class of 2017. He was honored in April at Mechanics Hall in Worcester as Nashoba Tech’s nominee for the Outstanding Vocational Technical Student Award, given by the Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators.

Bryson is president of the National Honor Society, an inductee into the National Technical Honor Society, and is president of the senior class, He is also a Kick-Off Mentor, helping incoming freshmen adjust to high school, co-president of the FIRST Robotics team, and founder and co-captain of the Math team. In track and field, Bryson qualified for the State Championship as a junior in the triple jump.

Bryson has been accepted into Worcester Polytechnic Institute and will start there this fall, hoping to major in Mathematics and Computer Science. He was nominated by English Instructor Bruce Sullivan, who wrote: “Bryson has reached a level of academic and technical proficiency matched by few in the history of our school. He helps to create a positive school culture through his genuine thirst for knowledge and his kind and caring personality. Bryson’s senior research paper, Data Science, is compelling and informative.”

Engineering Technology Instructor Jeffrey Scheminger added: “Bryson has continually shown leadership, mentoring and community mindedness in his senior year. He is always a positive spirit and always working.”
