With the guidance of teacher Dr. Benedict Tieniber, the students were recently crowned the winners of the Youth Business Summit: Reimagined social media competition. 

The competition was created by Virtual Enterprises International and encouraged all schools who participate in the VE program to use the hashtag #YBSReimagined to post updates about their student-made companies to social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter.

As part of the social media competition, Lynbrook students created Instagram and Twitters posts showing how their team is conducting business, as well as promoting special deals for customers, spotlighting team members and sharing their virtual enterprise experiences. Together, the virtual enterprise community voted on the top 10 teams. Lynbrook High School students earned first place and will be receiving $50,000 in virtual enterprise money, along with special recognition.

Honk and Hooray for Lynbrook’s Class of 2020

main thumbnail169113
As a special way to honor the soon-to-be graduates, Lynbrook High School building administrators, staff and central administrators illuminated the place where the Class of 2020 has called home for the past four years. Seniors and their families were encouraged to drive by the high school on Union Avenue on May 1 at 20:20 military time, a nod to the year, to see Lynbrook High School shining bright in their honor. Between the line of cars, excited honking and loud cheers, the administrators and staff celebrated each senior as they passed the high school while holding signs and pom poms.
Athletic Director Thomas Graham and Lynbrook High School Principal Joseph Rainis coordinated the momentous evening with the local fire and police departments who assisted with traffic control.
“It was so nice to see the members of the Class of 2020,” said Mr. Rainis. “They are a wonderful group – insightful, mature, leaders. I want to thank Mr. Graham, who really got things moving on this and I also want to thank Chief Nick Pearsall and Chief Mike Brooks of the Lynbrook Fire Department, as well as Chief Brian Paladino of the Lynbrook Police Department, for supporting the students and families of the class. It really was a nice moment. I hope that the students felt the support and love that Lynbrook High School and the community has for them because I sure did.”
