Phenix Flockhart of Littleton, Abigail Tarr of Chelmsford and Lylah Molina of Chelmsford have been named September’s Students of the Month at Nashoba Tech, based on the school’s “Portrait of a Graduate” attributes: resourceful, responsible, resilient, respectful and ready.
Phenix Flockhart, a senior in Electrical Technology, and Abigail Tarr, a senior in TV & Media Production/Theater Arts, were nominated for their resourcefulness during a recent thunderstorm at the end of the school day that caused major damage and flooding throughout the area.
“Abby and Phenix took it upon themselves to grab umbrellas and assist teachers by walking them to their cars to try to avoid being soaked,” wrote Emily Smith, a TV & Media Production/Theater Arts instructor. “Not only was I taken by surprise, but I was dry and very appreciative of the gesture. The two students showed incredible respect for the staff as well as resourcefulness in finding a simple way to stay dry but, more importantly, sharing that with those who needed it.”
Phenix’s parents are Ian and Dina Flockhart. As a sophomore, Phenix earned gold at the SkillsUSA District Competition in Telecommunications Cabling, then earned silver at States. Phenix plans to continue in the electrical field after graduation.
Abby, daughter of Andrew and Melissa Tarr, is a member of GSA, band and Viking Theatre Guild. She plans to attend college after graduation.
Lylah Molina, daughter of David and Aura Molina, is a senior in the Marketing program. She is an honor-roll student and a Freshman Mentor. She hopes to own a vintage-clothing store after graduation.
Lylah was nominated by Admissions/Guidance Coordinator Tricia Blackstock, who wrote: “Lylah has been a mentor for two years and volunteers for everything we ask of the mentors. Also, she has been an outstanding spokesperson for NT during middle-school presentations. She is always on time, respectful, prepared and ready to go. She offers great insight into being a student at NT and connects with the eighth-grade students.”
