Hampton Bays High School senior Michelle Moreno Mendoza has earned the prestigious 2018 Angelo Del Toro Scholarship Award. 

Michelle received the recognition for displaying leadership, civic activism and passion at the Angelo Del Toro Leadership Institute held recently in Albany. She was also required to pen an essay on the topic of artistic expression.    

As part of the leadership institute, Michelle took part in a mock assembly session in which she collaborated with 40 students from across Long Island to argue the pros and cons of four legislative bills. The bills were related to excessive force by law enforcement, the DREAM Fund, immigration and fair pay.   

Michelle said she will be studying political science in college in the fall and would like to become a lawyer.
