ASHLAND STUDENTS TURN DREAMS INTO REALITY AT KEEFE TECH
FRAMINGHAM, MA – At Keefe Regional Technical School, students from Ashland say their
Career and Technical Education has given them the tools they need to turn their future
aspirations into reality.
For Cameron Thebaud, a senior in the Programming and Web Design Career and Technical
Program, the decision to attend Keefe Tech came after spending his freshman year at a
conventional high school. “I was looking for more opportunity in high school to expand my
passion for computer programming. I am so grateful to have transferred to Keefe Tech for my
sophomore year,” he said.
Thebaud is an Eagle Scout, works as a cameraman for WACA TV in Ashland, and plans to
pursue a career in Criminal Justice. “I will graduate this year in June, accepted into my top
choice, Norwich University. I plan to combine my passion for programming with Criminal
Justice in college. I will always look back on my time at Keefe Tech as extremely beneficial and
a unique high school experience,” he added.
Spenser Vernes, Class of 2019, is a Metals Technology student also enrolled in many AP courses, including Computer Science, Calculus and Psychology. He is a member of the Cross Country team and an award-winning member of SkillsUSA, and will attend RIT where he will major inMechanical Engineering after graduation.
"Keefe opened doors for me. I have acquired professional skills in metal technology while
mastering my honors and AP level courses. Keefe helped me to realize my potential in
Mechanical Engineering and allowed me to be part of a cohesive group sharing similar goals. I
am very grateful to have had such a positive high school experience," he explained.
"Coming to Keefe Tech has been the best decision for my future. I am an honor roll student
getting ready to apply to many universities to major in Pre-Veterinary studies,” noted Keefe
Tech junior Natalia Rivera, also of Ashland. Rivera is enrolled in the school’s Health Careers
CTE program, serves as a student ambassador, and is a member of the student council and
volleyball team. "I chose Keefe Tech to get a head start on my career path,” she added. “I always knew I wanted to be in a ‘helping’ profession and after my tour of the health Careers Program, I was fully engaged.”
