Groton's Alyson Petersen Named Student of the Month at Nashoba Tech
Alyson Petersen of Groton has been selected as a Student of the Month for November at Nashoba Valley Technical High School.
Alyson, daughter of Jason and April Petersen, is a junior in the Dental Assisting program. She is an honor-roll student who hopes to attend Middlesex Community College after graduation to study Dental Hygiene, then go on to become a dentist.
Alyson was nominated by Dental Assisting Instructor Amanda Dangelo, who wrote: "Alyson has really stepped up and is a leader in the classroom. She has taken over a lot of tasks that I usually do during freshman exploratory. She also has led her shop to stay motivated and be on task by modeling her behavior. She has really blossomed over the summer into a responsible individual. She is a great help to me by doing whatever she can to help out. Her test grades also reflect the effort that she has put forth."
