Several Shawsheen Valley Technical High School students competed at the national SkillsUSA finals last weekend in Kansas City and the group once again impressed on the national stage, garnering multiple medals in several disciplines. Junior Jeannette Lavine of Bedford competed in medical math and finished ninth in the country.

Lavine was required to perform complex, multistep math calculations used in healthcare. This included medication dosage calculation, the use of ratio and proportion, calculating and applying percentages and conversion of metric measurements to household equivalents.

After graduating next spring from Shawsheen, Lavine hopes to attend college and study nursing with hopes of becoming a trauma nurse.

Superintendent/Director Charles Lyons stated “We are very proud of the national recognition and awards these technicians, artisans and craftsmen have received.  Their accomplishments reflect the high quality instruction they acquired from their teachers.”
