Regina Savage, Business Ed with Lexi Lucky Harrison, Plumbing, with Lexi
Lexi has the BEST attitude and work ethic- she is always upbeat, positive, and friendly with both adults and peers, and always has a smile on her face. She is the first to jump into any situation, regardless of the complexity or demands. Lexi had taken the Composites Manufacturing program last year, is currently the first and only female student in our Plumbing program, and is in our Franklin Savings Bank Teller Training classes. She has a strong desire to learn new and different things, and is very willing and committed to stepping out of her comfort zone for the betterment of herself and others.
One of the Business Education instructors reports that “For the past two years, Lexi has been stopping by my room just to say ‘hi” — I didn’t even know her when she started stopping by. Every day that she stops by, she brightens my day! This past fall, Lexi saw that I needed some help with FBLA projects that needed to be completed. She stepped right in and created and decorated the Thanksgiving baskets to be delivered to a local family and also continues to help put the Student of the Month gift bags together for our school-wide assemblies. Lexi decided to join FBLA this fall, and as an active member, she completed the Chapter Scrapbook and Chapter DIsplay- She won third place for the display at the state FBLA conference. Lexi is always willing to step up and help wherever and whenever help is needed”.
She is a Foster CTE Student Ambassador for the Plumbing program this year, and had represented the Composites Manufacturing program last year. Lexi is an active and involved student- She is a member of the National Honor Society, FBLA, Mt Blue High School soccer team captain, and a former student member of the Mt Blue Regional School District School Board. She is an active in her community as well. She is a volunteer rec department soccer coach, she teaches ski lessons at Titcomb Mt, and she volunteers at the New Vineyard Library- assisting with fundraising and the children’s programs. Most recently, Lexi has been appointed to the Town of New Vineyard Planning Board. Lexi is not afraid to step out of her comfort zone and accept new challenges. She is responsible, mature, determined, and reliable.
The Plumbing instructors report, “Lexi Daggett is a most worthy recipient of this award! She is always upbeat and ready to face challenges head on. Lexi participated in activities that promote Foster Tech and our Plumbing class. Examples of her support include her participating in the Chester Greenwood Parade, and being a student ambassador. She has a positive attitude on a regular basis. Sometimes, I wonder if she bites off more than she can chew, but she always does a good job in the activities she takes on. She is working hard on her future plans, and I think she will go far.”
“It is important in a male-oriented trade, to exhibit confidence, subject matter knowledge, and physical ability. She has it all! It is very nice to have her in class as she is not afraid to stand up and take on a leadership role. The male students in the Plumbing class have great respect for Lexi and her abilities. All of the positive things people say about Lexi are redundant, because all have the same things to say about this awesome student! “
The Composites Mfg instructor repeats that Lexi is an extremely hard worker that is always willing to take on anything, and, she is a really good person. Despite being the only female in the Composites Mfg class, she was never afraid to stand up for herself or to stand up to an issue if it was the right thing to do.
She always saw her projects through completion—nothing is ever left behind with Lexi.
She has a strong moral ethic and deep appreciation for the natural world, and plans to devote her career to managing and protecting our state’s natural resources.
We are very proud of Lexi and her accomplishments, and look forward to hearing about her future successes!
