With their families and guidance counselors in attendance, Mr. Wilder recognized each of them for performing spectacularly in their academics.

Each year, approximately 6,000 students across New York State earn the second level of the award of $500 a year, for four years, at a NYS college or university. This year’s recipients are Eddie Chen, Michael Feltman, Irvin Oestrich, and Khush Patel.

Only around 2,000 students earn the first level of award of $1,500 each year, for four years, at a NYS college or university, this year’s recipient is Allison Weinstein. 

These are incredible achievements for each of these students!  We are proud of their hard work and dedication to their academics.
