Tantasqua faculty highlights student achievements

January 31, 2011
STURBRIDGE — The many hours spent on taking standardized tests, touring colleges and writing essays for admissions departments are finally paying off for several Tantasqua Regional High School students, as acceptance letters are accumulating faster than the snow during last Thursday's storm.

"Many of our students learned in the last few weeks that they were accepted to colleges and universities, some of which are very prestigious," said Superintendent Daniel Durgin.

TRHS Principal Michael Lucas credits the guidance staff for its role in helping students become familiarized with the long and oftentimes confusing process of applying to colleges. Some of the students were so successful in their application endeavors that they were accepted to multiple institutions and must now make some difficult choices.

"Steve McGuiness, our guidance director, and his department do a wonderful job in connecting our students with the appropriate schools," Lucas said.

Earlier this month, Durgin announced seniors Jocelyn Hoye and Michael Julian as his selections for the 2011 Superintendent's Scholarship Award, and he added he was delighted to hear the news of even more TRHS students being rewarded for their hard work.
