February 24, 2019 GMT

WESTFORD -- Jillian Farrar of Shirley has been selected as a January Athlete of the Month at Nashoba Valley Technical High School

Jill, daughter of Cory and Camille Farrar, is a senior in the Culinary Arts program. She is an honor-roll student and competes for Nashoba Tech’s SkillsUSA team.

Jill was captain of the Culinary team that placed third at the recent statewide ProStart Invitational, hosted by the Massachusetts Restaurant Association and held at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. As captain, she was in charge of costing out all the ingredients, writing the recipes, and making sure her four teammates were on schedule. She has been manager of the football team for two years. Jill enjoys the baking aspects of Culinary Arts and plans to continue working after graduation for Bisousweet Confections in her hometown of Shirley.

Jill was nominated by Science Instructor Dave McCloskey, who wrote: “Jill has been in my science classes for three years, and she is one of the most conscientious students I’ve ever had. She shows effort every day in class and is a model student. I have also seen her work tirelessly in Culinary, especially over the holiday season, cranking out cookies for the platters offered during the holidays.”
