SHREWSBURY, Mass. — Two Shrewsbury High School students have been honored with the Shrewsbury Superintendent’s Award for 2013. Vivian He and Jennifer Tylock were recognized by the Shrewsbury School Committee last week.
He participated in the American Mathematics Competition, earning fourth place in Regional Science and was ranked among the Top 30 girls in the competition, according to Superintendent Joseph Sawyer. She has played violin since age 10 and has been dancing since age 5. As a sophomore, she became captain of the Shrewsbury High School’s Varsity Math Team.
The self-described mathlete thanked teachers, her family and her parents, who instilled in her “a love of learning.”
Tylock is a National Merit Commended Student, Assumption College Book Award recipient and received an excellence in physics award. She is captain of the girls spring track team, plays the French horn and participated in a service project in Cambodia with the American Youth Leadership Program.
Tylock thanked Shrewsbury's special education and music teachers, as well as her track coach. “I’m very honored,” she said.
School Committee Chairman Erin Canzano said it was inspiring to hear how the teachers influenced the students’ academic careers.
The Massachusetts Superintendents Association requests that each of the state’s superintendents recognize seniors annually on its behalf.
