The future of the latest Wamesit Lanes Person of the Week is looking pretty sweet.
Shawsheen Tech senior Brenna Ferreira has proven herself to be an exceptional student in the school's Culinary Arts program, with a special affinity for baking.
"Growing up, I was always cooking, always helping cook," said Brenna, who lives with her parents, Helene and Joe, and her younger sister Quinn. "For family parties, we'd always be cooking and baking things."
Brenna's talent in the classroom (Honor Roll, National Honor Society) and the kitchen have led to multiple scholarships, including one from Johnson and Wales University. But this fall she will be taking her skills to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, with an eye toward a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts Management. The school's alumni include Anthony Bourdain, Amanda Freitag and Todd English, among others.
Brenna holds down two jobs, at 
JT Cakes in SouthTewksbury and at Tewksbury Country Club.
When not working, she spends time volunteering with organizations such as the Tewksbury Food Pantry, Relay for Life, Lucy’s Love Bus and the Tanner “Ta Ta” Foundation in Woburn.
For being named Wamesit Lanes Person of the Week, Brenna receives a gift card from Wamesit Lanes Family Entertainment Center.
