 WESTFORD — Julia Masson of Westford and Zachary Connell of Ayer have been selected as February’s Students of the Month at Nashoba Tech.
        Julia Masson, daughter of John and Cheryl Masson, is a junior in the Banking/Marketing/Retail program. She is an honor-roll student and was inducted into the National Honor Society as a sophomore. She participates in SkillsUSA and DECA, and is vice president of the Class of 2016.
        Outside of school, Julia has volunteered at a local food kitchen. Through Nashoba Tech’s Cooperative Education program, Julia works every other week at Northern Bank & Trust in Littleton. Last year, she qualified for the DECA State Conference by virtue of her performance in the District Conference.
        Julia was nominated by Banking/Marketing/Retail Instructor Sarah Ricard, who wrote: “She always approaches tasks big and small with a positive attitude, and has displayed a level of maturity and professionalism that is not often found within the confines of high-school walls, and even rivals some adults. Julia always volunteers at events, is willing to help out students and teachers, and has proven herself and her technical skills.”
        Kelli Eliopoulos, manager of the school’s branch of the Lowell Five Cent Savings Bank, added, “Julia is a self-starter who grasps concepts quickly, and is someone I can rely on for a job well done every time.”
        Zachary Connell, son of Michael and Phyllis Connell, is a senior in the Electrical Technology program. He is an honor-roll student and was selected by the staff to be a Kick-Off Mentor, helping incoming freshmen to adapt to Nashoba Tech. He also participates in SkillsUSA.
        Zach is a three-sport standout athlete, competing for the football, basketball and baseball teams, and was named an Athlete of the Month as a sophomore for basketball. He has been accepted to Merrimack College, where he plans to major in Communications.
        Zach was nominated by Social Studies instructor Lacey McCabe, who wrote: “Zach is in my Government class and is always so respectful of me and his classmates. He works very hard and always takes the initiative to ask excellent questions in order to clarify anything he wants to learn more about. He is a pleasure to have in class.”
