Deplacido & Fontannay are the November Seniors of the month
Paul DePlacido and Jenna Fontannay were recently named Shawsheen Tech’s November Seniors of the Month.
DePlacido, of Billerica, was scheduled to accept the award on Nov. 28, the day after the Shawsheen football team played in the Div. 4 state semifinals against St. Mary’s of Lynn. DePlacido was the featured running back for the Ram team that won its third straight league championship this season.
He also plays basketball and baseball for the Rams.
While DePlacido’s athletic accomplishments are impressive, he’s done a terrific job in the classroom as well.
DePlacido is a member of the National Honor Society, is on the high-honor roll and has earned a citizenship award. He has also been a counselor at a baseball camp for children with disabilities.
A plumbing student with experience through Shawsheen’s cooperative education program, DePlacido hopes to attend college in the fall.
Fontannay, a Billerica resident, is one of the school’s top students and one of the most involved members of the student body.
Fontannay is a member of the math team and is also part of the school newspaper, the school’s literary magazine and the yearbook.
Academically, Fontannay is just as successful.
She has been an honor-roll student for four years and is a member of the National Honor Society. She has also earned a citizenship award.
Outside of school, Fontannay volunteers at St. Anne’s Church.
She hopes to attend a four-year college next year.
