Lynbrook Senior Named Candidate in U.S. Presidential Scholars Program

Congratulations Damaris Hernandez Photo thumbnail179564

Damaris Hernandez, a senior from Lynbrook High School, was recently selected as one of 25 high school seniors from New York State to be nominated for the 2021 United States Presidential Scholars Program. Being recognized in the program is one of the highest honors that a high school student can obtain. Damaris was one of five New York seniors to be nominated for demonstrating ability and accomplishment in career and technical education.

The prestigious program honors up to 161 students each year as scholars. These students represent excellence in education and the promise of greatness in young people. Presidential Scholars are selected by the Commission on Presidential Scholars based on one of three paths of accomplishment – academic achievement, academic and artistic scholarship in the visual arts, performing arts or creative writing, or outstanding scholarship and accomplishment in career and technical education fields.
Damaris is currently enrolled at Nassau BOCES Barry Tech where she is part of the physical therapy and rehabilitation medicine program which she calls “the best decision of her life.”

“I get to work with my teacher who is a chiropractor and she teaches me many life lessons,” she said. “I get so much hands-on experience that I feel I’ll be set in the real world.  It is like working in a hospital, it’s such an amazing and beneficial experience that I’m forever thankful for.”

Last year, she served as an orthodontist assistant where she helped clean and translate patient details and information. Damaris currently works at a professional physical therapy office where she serves as a physical therapy aid. Among her responsibilities, she helps sanitize, assess exercises and assist the doctors in the office.

Aside from her career and technical education experience, Damaris is an active member of the Lynbrook High School community. She was a valuable member of the school’s cheer team and softball team where she served as co-captain of the varsity team last year. Damaris also served as the vice-president of the school’s Spanish club and joined the Diversity Club this year. For the past four years, Damaris has enjoyed working with children in the district’s Summer Playground Program.

The Lynbrook Public Schools congratulates her on this outstanding recognition!

Despite the pandemic, members of the Lynbrook High School Key Club recently partnered with the New York Blood Center for its blood drive at the Lynbrook Knights of Columbus. With blood donations being a critical need more than ever today, more than 65 alumni, community members, staff and students donated more than 80 pints of blood to save about 240 lives. Due to the current health crisis, donors were encouraged to sign-up in advance, wear a mask and practice social distancing at the site.

The Lynbrook High School Key Club, along with adviser Dr. Benedict Tieniber, promoted the blood drive through the club’s Instagram account and spots to donate were filled quickly. The club typically hosts its blood drives in the Lynbrook High School gymnasium during the school day but with the change in venue, more parents and community members popped in to donate. Dr. Tieniber was impressed by the crowd and commended the students who came out to show their support on a Saturday. 

“It is really evident that even in crazy times like these, nothing will stop the LHS students from doing what they can to give back, help people, and, most importantly, save lives,” he said.

Members of the Lynbrook High School National Honor Society recently celebrated the season of giving with a toy, craft and game drive to support the pediatric department and pediatric critical care unit at NYU Langone Hospital – Long Island. The students, along with NHS adviser Leonard Bruno, collected 10 boxes of new toys, crafts and games for children at the hospital to enjoy.
National Honor Society President Ashley Roth, Vice-President Camilla Bahri, Secretaries Samantha Shea and Ambiya Hussain and Treasurer Carl Zou stopped by the homes of their fellow NHS members to collect donations from doorsteps. This resulted in a car trunk full of toys to make the holiday brighter for these young patients.
“I am so happy with the turnout of our toy collection and I am so thankful that the pediatric departments will be able to enjoy all of our donations for the holidays,” said Ashley.

Lynbrook High School seniors Christina Franco and Joseph Giovinco were recently recognized with the Outstanding Physical Education Student Award from the Nassau Zone of the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance.

Each year, the association honors two exceptional PE students in their senior year from high schools across Nassau County. These students are nominated by their physical education teachers for not only their physical abilities but their integrity, leadership skills and their personal and social responsibility.

Due to the current pandemic, Christina and Joseph were celebrated along with their fellow 2020-2021 award recipients during a virtual ceremony. Each senior was asked to submit a video answering the question, “How has Physical Education contributed to your high school experience?” Christina shared how physical fitness has always been a large part of her everyday life.

“I have learned many lessons like discipline and hard work,” she said. “The friendships and experiences were immeasurable. I would like to thank all my physical education teachers for bestowing me this honor.”

Joseph also shared how physical education has shaped him in his video statement.

“As a lifelong competitive athlete, physical education has always been my outlet during a long stressful school day to let loose and have fun with my friends,” he said. “I’m so thankful for all my teachers and all that they taught me.”

Congratulations to both students on this outstanding achievement!

Three student-athletes from Lynbrook High School are one step closer to playing college athletics next year. Seniors John Carver, Andrew Ciprian and Jenna Hendrickson recently signed their commitment letters to play their sport of choice at the collegiate level.

John will take his baseball talents to Adelphi University, Andrew will continue his passion for lacrosse at Palm Beach Atlantic University and Jenna will bring her lacrosse skills to the University of Pittsburgh. John’s high school baseball coach Al Marrazzo praised the student-athlete for his hard work and this well-deserved honor.
“I am so proud of the young man he has become,” Mr. Marrazzo said. “He is driven and focused and understands what it takes to be successful. He is a young man that has earned this scholarship and opportunity. He is well deserving and we wish him nothing but the best. He and his family should be extremely proud!”
Boys varsity lacrosse coach William Leighley shared his excitement about Andrew’s next chapter.
“There are very few, if any, of our lacrosse players who love the sport more than Andrew and for him to be able to continue playing in college makes me and all of his coaches so pleased,” he said. “It was the best thing I ever did when I was a player and I am sure he will feel the same way. I can’t wait to follow what I know will be a successful four years!”

Jenna’s lacrosse coach Vinny Tetro also commended his student-athlete whom he sees as an extraordinary lacrosse player and an amazing young lady.

“Jenna worked tirelessly over many years to fulfill her goal of playing high level Division 1 lacrosse,” he said. “She has done things on the lacrosse field that players and coaches alike are in awe of. She has a natural ability to slow the game down in her mind which allows her to play at a level only truly great players can achieve. A huge congratulations to Jenna and her family!”
Congratulations to all three students-athletes and their families on this milestone occasion!

The Bern Seiderman Gallery Online Exhibit: “Design a Line”

November 2020 Online Art Gallery Design a Line Graphic thumbnail178081
The Bern Seiderman Gallery is proud to present its first online Gallery Exhibit for the 2020-2021 school year entitled “Design a Line.” The work on display features the amazing T-shirt surface designs and board layouts from Mrs. Goulet's Fashion Design students. 

For the project, students used printmaking techniques to create their backgrounds and then found graphics and other images from magazines to embellish their designs further. They created many options and then edited them to create their “line.” In addition to designing their line, the students designed a hang tag to create their brand identity. Through this project, the students learned the importance of creating their clothing line in a preview “board” form in order to get feedback from the customer and to make changes before any samples are made. 

Following this work, the students will illustrate their garments on the figure using fashion croquis. Please take a moment to look through at and share with friends and family this month's Online Gallery featuring “Design a Line.”
