Allison Jensen of Chelmsford and Samuel Hesketh of Westford are Nashoba Tech's October Athletes of the Month.

Allison Jensen , daughter of Chris and Shelli Jensen, was nominated by volleyball coaches Lynnsey Shaughnessy and Miriam Moodley, who wrote that she was a leader for the team during the recently completed season. The coaches said she always had a positive attitude, worked hard at practices and at games, and never gave up.

Allison is a high-honors student in the Veterinary Assisting program and has been inducted into both the National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society.

Samual Hesketh, son of Dave Hesketh and Shannon McGrath, is a freshman cross-country runner who, according to coach Bruce Sullivan, “improved consistently throughout the year.” He added that Samuel has excellent grades and “shows the traits of a leader already as a freshman.”

Samuel is in the exploratory process and expressed interest in joining either the Carpentry or Hospitality Management program.
