Sarah Bartos of Chelmsford (pictured) and Michael Prideaux of Lowell have been selected as October’s Students of the Month at Nashoba Tech, based on the school’s “Portrait of a Graduate” attributes: resourceful, responsible, resilient, respectful and ready.
Sarah Bartos, daughter of Matthew and Melissa Bartos, is a sophomore in the Culinary Arts program and is a high-honors student.
She hopes to attend college after graduation to pursue her goal of becoming a pastry chef.
Sarah was nominated by Spanish teacher Amy St. Arnaud, who wrote: “Sarah is an outstanding student who comes to class every day curious and ready to learn. In Spanish class, she always chooses the option to ‘level up’ and try more sophisticated language. She is also the first to do extra credit or participate in an enrichment activity. Sarah also has outstanding character and is a friend to all. Sarah is a delight to have in class, excels in academics and is respected by peers and teachers. She is on her way to being bilingual with her excellent Spanish communication skills.”
Michael Prideaux, son of Mike and Laurene Prideaux, is a senior in the Design & Visual Communications program. He is a member of the Outdoors Club, Cultures & Communities Club and Gaming Club. He is a high-honors student and is one of a handful of students who painted a mural inside the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, N.H., that was unveiled last year.
He plans to attend college to study Programming, and is interested in the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Merrimack College.
Michael was nominated by Science teacher David McCloskey, who wrote: “Michael is in my Advanced Placement Biology class and has always come to class ready and responsible. He is resilient and resourceful in preparing for upcoming assessments by creating quizzes which he shares with his classmates. He continually has shown respect in the classroom and for his fellow students by frequently helping them with notes and math calculations, and has even offered to create a class group chat. He is respectfully called ‘Mikeapedia’ by his fellow students.”
