With an academic schedule that includes Advanced Placement Physics, Calculus, and Literature and Composition, Jeff currently maintains a 4.48 GPA. The Engineering Technology student has acquired several certifications including Certified Solidworks Associate, MACWIC Level 1 and Level 2 Manufacturing, AutoCAD Certified User, Revit Certified User and 10 Hour OSHA Card. Jeff has also received the Tri-County Perfect Attendance Award, having had perfect attendance during his high school years.

"Each year, it is always difficult to select only one student, given how many deserving candidates we have here at Tri-County," said Stephen Dockray, Superintendent. "Jeff has not only excelled academically, but has participated in many extracurricular activities during his four years at Tri-County including SkillsUSA, NASA HUNCH and is a member of the National Honor Society."

A Medway resident, Jeff is involved in Boy Scouts of America where he is pursuing the rank of Eagle Scout. Jeff also works part-time for Roche Bros as a cashier. Through his rigorous schedule, Jeff has developed and honed his time management skills.

Jeff plans to pursue a mechanical engineering degree in college.

Tri-County RVTHS, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, is a recipient of the High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award and serves the communities of Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleborough, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole, and Wrentham.
