Eighteen notable students at the high school were recognized by their teachers and school administrators on Nov. 9 at the annual fall Breakfast for Champions. Each fall and spring, student champions are chosen by each of the school’s departments, alongside principal’s and teacher’s champions, and are lauded by the educators and presented with plaques in front of their attending families. Deer Park’s string ensemble provided the music for the event, held in the school library.

The fall 2017 Breakfast for Champions honorees were Alexa Arbore (art), Kiera Blake (family and consumer science), Michael Catanzaro (performing arts), Melissa Fisk (technology), Lynne Gbadamosi (Principal’s Award), Brianna Huffstead (science), Mohamed Khan (health), Anthony Machuca (world languages), Daniela Paz Rodriguez (English as a new language), Vito Piazza (Teacher’s Award), Tarque Rahman (business), Ashley Ronquillo (guidance), Brayan Sanchez (math), Tabbatha Sanchez (English language arts), Alexa Skoubas (physical education), Yonis Velasquez Garcia (social studies) and James Wahl (athletics).

“These students have continually demonstrated exceptional character and conduct,” said Associate Principal Kristen Anisis. “They have overcome obstacles, shown outstanding effort in their classes, and have made significant contributions to our school.”

Freshmen Focus on Careers at Deer Park’s Day of Discussion

The high school’s freshmen recently got a head start on career ideas as they participated in the school’s annual Career Day, meeting and talking about jobs and entrepreneurship with dozens of presenters from a variety of different careers including banking, health care, law enforcement, nursing, law, psychology, fiction writing, marketing and social work. These professionals included Deer Park alumni, members of the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce, local business owners and parents of current students.

Rob Pannell, a much-awarded legendary lacrosse player for Cornell University and the New York Lizards, kicked the event off with a well-received keynote speech.  

“Career Day 2017 was a great success,” said business teacher Jill Perry-Eising. “It is a large event to coordinate, and we couldn’t have run the event without the enthusiastic cooperation our local business community.”
