To motivate eighth-graders to start thinking about their futures, the middle school hosted its 10th annual College Awareness Day on Jan. 3. 

Organized by guidance counselors Lorie O’Halloran and Jessica Sears, the eighth-graders gained insight and perspective into college life from Hampton Bays High School alumni who are now enrolled in college. The alumni answered questions about their college experiences and discussed the typical college schedule, admissions process and extracurricular offerings. 

The district extends its gratitude to the following college students who participated in the event: Christian Berglin (SUNY Maritime College), Jean Catena (West Virginia University), Kaylee Catena (Baruch College), Taylor Dunn (Marist College), Noah Montague (Stony Brook University), Erin Murphy (SUNY Geneseo), Alexandra Peterson (Roger Williams University) and David Ramirez (Farmingdale State College).
