WESTFORD — Samantha Valcourt of Westford and Robert Paris of Pepperell are Nashoba Tech’s April Athletes of the Month, both earning the honor for the second time.
Samantha Valcourt, daughter of Tara Valcourt and the late Alan Valcourt, is a junior on the softball team and cheerleading squad. On the softball field, she has been a team leader who maintains a positive attitude, always wears a smile and never gives up on developing her skills.
Samantha is a high-honors student enrolled in the Health Assisting program. During this distance learning period, she has continued working at a local nursing home, keeping up with her course work, and finding time to stay active by participating in workouts at home. On and off the field, her hard work and determination make her the model of a Viking student-athlete.
Robert Paris, on of John and Donna Paris, is a senior who competes for the spring track and cross-country teams. He has been a dedicated athlete on the track team for four years and has worked hard every year, which is evident by the way he has consistently improved. He is one of the best long-distance runners on the team and sets a wonderful example to the younger student-athletes who look up to him.
Robert is enrolled in the Veterinary Assisting program. He is a member of the National Honor Society and treasurer of the National Technical Honor Society. He plans to attend college and remain in the veterinary field.
