CHS' Military-Bound Seniors Honored

CHS honored seven soon-to-be-graduates on Wednesday morning who are putting country above self.

Joined by U.S. Marines sergeant Christopher Rosarioventura, Air Force technical sergeant Nathaniel Miles, Army major Brewster Tisson, retired Navy lieutenant Francis Martin from congressman Nick LaLotta’s office, legislator Robert Trotta, superintendent Dr. Jordan Cox and high school administrators, the seniors and their families were recognized at the annual CHS Military Breakfast.

Legislator Trotta, who served as keynote speaker, praised the seniors for their commitment to America.

“You are doing something that most people never do,” he said. “You made a decision to stand up for our country.”

Dr. Cox drew on three generations of his family serving in the military to praise the students.

“I know how successful you will be,” he said, “and I want you to know from the bottom of our hearts how proud we are.”

CHS Scores Big in International Science Competition

CHS student Mehek S. capped an exciting week at the International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles with a lofty result and monetary prize.

Mehek placed second in the microbiology category at the international competition, while competing against 1,327 projects from 370 schools spanning 47 states and 67 countries. She earned a $2,000 prize.

During the all-expenses-paid trip to L.A. with science research coordinator Jeanette Collette and their team, the CHS group had the opportunity to exhale with visits to Universal Studios, the Warner Brothers Studio, Santa Monica Pier and Hollywood.

They also attended scientific workshops and enjoyed a Q&A with astronaut Jeannette Epps from the International Space Station.

Mehek’s research involved the secretion of the Francisella tularensis protein FTL_1123 by Escherichia coli containing the HlyBD operon. The project was developed under the mentorship of Dr. David Thanassi at Stony Brook University.

Visiting Artist Offers Tips to CHS Students

CHS students in Robert Raeihle’s Studio in Digitial Media Arts classes had the opportunity to create gel print artwork on Tuesday and Wednesday with guidance from an accomplished visitor.

Via the Boces Arts in Education program, illustrator and designer Moriah Ray visited Raeihle’s classes to discuss the Gelli Plate art technique.

The tutorial — which involves applying acrylic paint to gelatin plates and then transferring images, similar to how a printing press would function — fit in well with the Studio in Digital Media Arts coursework. The class generally focuses on skills with digital tools such as Adobe Photoshop, but the hands-on arts lesson similarly utilized layers to create art.

"Your freshmen are going to have a great experience," vice principal Matthew Keltos told the families. "This is a great place."

CHS Freshman Selected County's Teen Poet

CHS freshman Sarah G. is Suffolk County’s Teen Poet Laureate — only the second student ever to hold that title.

Three years ago, county legislators created the role for a student to spearhead opportunities to bring poetry by and for young residents into the community as a positive force.

While enrolled in the CHS English elective Writer's Workshop, Sarah completed her application material for the Suffolk County Teen Poet Laureate Contest. The entry packet included a letter of recommendation, a curriculum vitae documenting leadership and civic engagement, and a portfolio of three poems, each no longer than 60 lines.

As a finalist, Sarah attended an interview panel. And on May 1, she sat before the legislature to confirm her appointment.

On June 1, she will attend an event at the Walt Whitman Birthplace Center to celebrate the beginning of her term.
