How It Feels to Be Senior of the Month

At first, Emmanuel was extremely surprised when he found out he was awarded October Senior of the Month. He didn’t expect this at all but he was very grateful that the faculty recognized his hard work and dedication. He would like to thank Ms. Prusicki, Ms. Salsman, Ms. Riverso, Ms. Della Serra, Mr. Henderson, Coach Weidele, Coach Christathakis, and Coach Herre for always believing in him and pushing him to the best of his abilities.

Future Plans

After graduation, Emmanuel plans to further his education by attending college and becoming an engineer. Emmanuel’s top pick for college is Stony Brook University. His other options include New Jersey Institute of Technology, UMass, and Stevens Institute of Technology. His advice to underclassmen would be to keep working hard, follow your dreams, and don’t give up. It all pays off in the end!
