Principal Leslie Weckesser is pleased to recognize Trista Sicard as a Class of 2022 Senior in the Spotlight. Sicard is a senior in the Plumbing vocational program. She chose the program as it was what she enjoyed most through the freshman exploratory program. Her mother is also the Chief Estimator at NEI, a general contracting company, and felt that she could see herself in the industry because of her mother.
Sicard currently works at GEM Plumbing and Heating. For most of her time there, she has been working on a senior assisted housing facility in Hanover installing showers, toilets, kitchen sinks, lavatories, storm drains and more. As an apprentice plumber, she measures, cuts and installs piping and is usually paired with a master plumber.
During her time at Southeastern, Sicard has taken multiple Advanced Placement courses and holds a 4.4 GPA. She has been named to the High Honor Roll each semester.
She is the senior Class President, a student representative for School Council and part of the Student Athletic Advisory Board, a club promoting the idea of “One Southeastern” through participation in athletics and spirit weeks. The club helps plan senior nights for student-athletes as well.
Sicard has participated in indoor and outdoor track and field, serving as a captain during her junior and senior seasons. She has received several awards, including Female Athlete of the Year, the Most Valuable Player for girls’ outdoor track and field, and the Mayflower Athletic Conference Player of the Year for indoor track and field. She holds the school records for indoor track and field for high jump, long jump, 55-meter dash and 55-meter hurdles, and the school records for outdoor track and field for triple jump and 100-meter hurdles.
Following graduation, she plans to attend Babson College majoring in management for project management or construction management. She also plans to continue in track and field in college.
Southeastern’s Senior Spotlights are chosen based on their high academic and vocational achievement. Seniors are selected from each of the nine towns Southeastern serves and are highlighted prior to graduation which will be held this year on June 8.
