Holcombe: “Tech is the place to be”

   Class of 2010 valedictorian Shaniqua Holcombe looks forward to praising Lynn Vocational Technical Institute in her speech to fellow graduates and mixing some high school memories with humor.
   “I’ll talk about what we are going to miss and what we are not going to miss,” said the senior who Tech guidance counselor Heather Toomey said does it all as student and athlete.
   Besides excelling in school, Holcombe played Tech softball and basketball, ran the 400 and 200 meter and was the soccer team captain in addition to playing in the dodge ball tournament.
   She credits her mother, Karen, and father, Sherman, with letting
her try new activities as a child. She signed up for Girls Incorporated and the Girl Scouts and attended Summer of Discovery and the Upward Bound mathematics and science
   She grew up in Kings Lynne and crossed O’Callaghan Way to attend the Callahan School and Breed Middle School. She is smack dab in the middle of four siblings: Older brother, Guy; older sister, Ashia; younger brother, Donte, and little sister,
   “It made it easier to be a student; I wasn’t in the spotlight,” she said.
   A love of math and an interest in science developed while studying at the Coastal Ocean Science Academy in Nahant, which provided the foundation for her decision to study forensic science at the University of New Haven this fall. She will spend part of the summer at an academic program in Maine.
   “Over the summer I’ll go to Upward Bound as a bridge stu-Holcombe: “Tech is the place to be” dent doing group projects researching eyesight. I’ll also do an individual project on milk.”
   She is headed for Connecticut but Holcombe’s heart remains
on Neptune Boulevard.
“Lynn Tech is the place to be. People say, ‘Tech people don’t do
anything with their lives.’ I came here to prove them wrong.”
