Hudson -  In early January, the Worcester County Superintendents’ Association will host their Annual Scholars’ Luncheon at Clark University to honor the area’s best and brightest high school students. This year, the Assabet Valley Regional Technical High student recipient will be Ashley Peck who has been number one in her class all four years at Assabet.

Peck chose the Health Technologies program at Assabet, even though her original intent was Culinary Arts. “Once I got here and saw Health Technologies, I knew I had to try it out. I loved it, earned a spot in it, and have never looked back. I don’t plan to go into nursing, but I have always had an interest in how the body works, or health sciences. I’ve applied to several colleges and universities that have those programs, and I’m hoping to someday have my own business, possibly as a personal trainer, or something else in sports medicine. I’m really into the Mind-Body-Spirit kind of thing,” explained Peck.

While at Assabet, Peck took Advanced Placement courses in English, Government, and Pre-Engineering, as well as being currently enrolled in the Quinsigamond College Psychology course offered to Assabet students. She has been involved in Student Council for three years, and is currently the Secretary for the Class of 2013. She played varsity volleyball all four years, serving as team captain both junior and senior years, and hopes to continue volleyball at least at the club level in college. She has also received the Hudson Rotary Outstanding Achievement Award, and did a nine hour 26.2 mile walk for the Jimmy Fund.

Peck resides in Hudson.
