Nicholas DeRovira, a freshman in the Electrical Construction Program, has been selected as Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School’s (SCVTHS) Student of the Month for May 2022. Nicholas is the son of Dolf and Tammy DeRovira of Branchburg.
SCVTHS Social Studies Instructor Dr. Louise Tokarsky-Unda nominated Nicholas for the Student of the Month award stating, “Nicholas has gone from dreading history to loving history; he engages in class discussion, is diligent about doing his homework on time, and most recently he asked if he could improve upon an already good test score because he wanted to make it an exceptional test score. He is an example of a student who is excelling because of the goals he sets for himself. His natural love of learning has returned, and he challenges himself to do his very best. I couldn't be prouder.”
Electrical Construction Instructor Mr. Michael McClain added, “Nick has a positive attitude towards learning and has taken on a large role in helping other students learn as well. He is an excellent candidate for the student of the month.”
Outside of school, Nick participates in the Mercer County Golf League. Additionally, at SCVTHS, Nick has assisted in the beach clean-up and participated in SkillsUSA. In his free time, Nick enjoys golfing and playing video games.
After graduating from SCVTHS, Nick hopes to become an electrician or an electrical engineer.
