Alumni Inspire Middle Schoolers

Alumni Inspire Middle Schoolers
To inspire eighth-graders to start thinking about their futures, the middle school hosted its annual College Awareness Day on Jan. 4.

During the event, which was organized by guidance counselors Lorie O’Halloran and Jessica Sears, the middle school students gained insights and perspectives about college life from Hampton Bays High School graduates and children of school staff who are now enrolled in college. The college students answered questions about their experiences to date and discussed such topics as the typical college schedule, selection process and extracurricular activities offered.

The district expresses appreciation to the following college students who participated in the event: Angie Delgado (SUNY Oswego), Alexandra Peterson (SUNY Stony Brook), Christian Berglin (SUNY Maritime College), Noah Montague (SUNY Stony Brook), Vanessa Para Henao (Baruch College), Mary Kelly Hilton (SUNY Geneseo), Taylor Dunn (Marist College), David Ramirez (Farmingdale State College), Daniela Guttierez (SUNY Oneonta) and Laura Maila (James Madison University).
