Congratulations to Trevor Simon, a senior Plumbing student from Waltham, who was named Minuteman High School’s Outstanding Vocational Student of the Year. He received an award in a prestigious ceremony on Thursday, April 14, hosted by the Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators (MAVA) at Mechanics Hall in Worcester. Each vocational-technical high school in Massachusetts selected one student for the Outstanding Vocational Student of the Year Award.

Trevor was also the recipient of Minuteman’s Plumbing All-Star Award for the Class of 2022. He works for SDH Plumbing and Heating of Waltham through Minuteman’s Cooperative Education (Co-Op) Program. Trevor was co-captain of the school football team. Upon graduation, he plans to continue working in the plumbing trade as he pursues a Journeyman’s license while enrolled in evening courses.

Trevor was nominated by Guidance Counselor Diane Dempsey and Plumbing Teacher Kyle Romano. Both praised him warmly for his diligence and maturity.

“He’s a super respectful young man,” Dempsey said.

“Trevor is a respectful, bright, compassionate, and determined individual,” Romano said. “He is an honest and focused team player. Trevor has always been a positive example for his classmates in the Plumbing program. His teachers and peers have admiration for Trevor, as do his employers and coworkers.”
