        WESTFORD — Nine students at Nashoba Tech earned national recognition for their excellent performance on the 2016 National Spanish Examinations.

        Nashoba Tech students earned one silver medal, two bronze medals and six honorable mentions. They are taught by Stacy Stevens.

        Alexandra Frias (sophomore, Lowell) won silver, Kaitlyn Fales (sophomore, Townsend) and Yessenia Gamez (sophomore, Ayer) won bronze, and honorable mentions went to Nicholas Cerone (sophomore, Peppered), Jason Gendron (freshman, Dracut), Jordan Hasbrouck (freshman, Pepperell), Eneida Torres-Perez (sophomore, Lowell), Brendan Taylor (freshman, Chelmsford) and Jenna Thompson (sophomore, Littleton).

        “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the 
National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious, because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States, with over 160,000 students participating in 2016,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, national director of the exams.

        The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6 through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
