Suffolk County School Superintendents Recognize Class of 2021 Valedictorian Anthony Notartomaso

On Thursday, June 3, the Suffolk County School Superintendents Association continued its long-standing tradition of recognizing the highest-achieving graduates in Suffolk County. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 27th Annual Celebration of the Class of 2021 Valedictorians was presented as a virtual event. School superintendents, valedictorians and their parents gathered in small groups, within their own school districts, to view the event and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of this year’s valedictorians.

SCSSA President and Center Moriches School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ronald M. Masera hosted the event, thanked the association’s corporate partners for their support in helping to make the event possible and congratulated the valedictorians on their success.

“Some of the most highly regarded schools in the nation are located in Suffolk County,” Dr. Masera said. “To achieve the status of a Suffolk County valedictorian is an extraordinary achievement.”

This year’s keynote speaker was Jon Gordon, well-known author of several books including “The Energy Bus” and “The Power of Positive Leadership.” He spoke to the valedictorians about the benefits of positive leadership and the true meaning of encouraging others to succeed.

“You have the power to transform the world,” Mr. Gordon said. “You decide your future. Be a positive leader and impact the people around you. Remember, the best is yet to come.”

The SCSSA would like to congratulate all of this year’s valedictorians, including Bellport High School Class of 2021 Valedictorian Anthony Notartomaso.

This year, on behalf of the SCSSA, South Country Central School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Giani presented Anthony with a commemorative program, congratulatory video, a certificate of achievement, a cherished childhood storybook, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss and Jon Gordon’s book “The Energy Bus.” The program and video, which was created especially for the Class of 2021, featured information about each valedictorian’s school district, their formal senior yearbook photo, their college of choice and anticipated major. The choice of the storybook was certainly appropriate, as this year’s valedictorians plan to attend some of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the nation.

In addition to recognizing the valedictorians, the SCSSA and their corporate partners awarded scholarships in every high school in Suffolk County to a highly deserving graduating senior planning to pursue a career in education or social services. These worthy scholarship recipients were selected by their own school districts for this special recognition.

Bringing Poetry from the Page to the Stage

Bellport High School students brought the printed black and white words of poems from the page to the stage during a Poetry Alive! performance and two workshops. A grant provided by the South Country Education Foundation provided the special English language arts activity that was hosted virtually by the Poetry Alive! performance group out of Asheville, North Carolina.

During the performance, Poetry Alive! presented popular and not so well-known poetic verse as theater and transformed poems into scripts and the students as actors. With the high school library as a stage, students participated in an interactive experience that sparked their interest in the poetic word. Students enrolled in English Language Arts, English as a New Language and public speaking and debate classes learned to express themselves through such poems as Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken,” Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and Langston Hughes’ “Harlem.” Many of the students had the opportunity to try their hand at blackout poetry, a way of changing the meaning of a poem by blacking out the words of a poem except for a select few.

Bellport High School’s top seniors were recognized during the annual senior awards ceremony, held in the gymnasium on June 7. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the former senior awards format was divided alphabetically into three separate assemblies to allow for parents to attend. Additionally, the ceremony was livestreamed via a link posted to the high school webpage, Grade 12 Google Classroom and the Senior Awards and Recognition Google Classroom.

In all, 138 awards were presented to the Class of 2021’s highest achieving students who received community scholarships, local and regional recognitions, department honors, military honors, student government recognitions and athletic awards.

During his opening address, Class President David Carlson described his classmates as resilient individuals who learned to adapt to the many challenges they faced through the pandemic. “Life will constantly throw curveballs at you. Life will constantly keep you guessing,” David said. “We’ve been through COVID, so I can guarantee you can get through much more.”

Principal Timothy Hogan said he was proud of the individuals who are receiving “special and meaningful awards.” He called each student to the podium as their photo and list of recognitions flashed on a screen. Each of the students received a senior tote bag, containing the honors they received, and copies of the senior awards programs.

Bellport High School senior Laura Slovensky has been appointed to the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut and will report for summer training to the Academy’s Corps of Cadets on June 28, just two days after high school graduation. Laura’s appointment was only one of the 400 offered annually from a pool of 2,000 applicants.

“I’m extremely proud and excited for this opportunity to attend my dream school and am really looking forward to it,” Laura said.

The smallest of the nation’s five military academies, the U.S. Coast Guard Corps of Cadets is a credited college which educates future Coast Guard officers. Cadets receive a full tuition scholarship and monthly stipend for a five-year service commitment to the U.S. Coast Guard upon graduation. All graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree and are guaranteed a position of leadership as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Coast Guard.

Laura’s road to this appointment parallels her love of being on the water. She was recruited to the Academy for competitive sailing. For the past two years, Laura spent her sophomore and junior years of high school at the U.S. Performance Academy, an online high school, so she could train and travel around the world full time and compete in sailing on the Olympic level. She will continue her sailing career on the U.S. Coast Guard Academy’s dinghy sailing team against other top colleges.

Laura has chosen a government major with a security studies track. She hopes to pursue law enforcement within the U. S. Coast Guard upon graduation.

The District congratulates Laura on this outstanding achievement and best wishes for success.

South Country Participates in the Murph Challenge

Bellport High School students, teachers and administrators commemorated Memorial Day weekend through participation in the second annual Lt. Michael P. Murphy Murph Challenge, a grueling fitness workout to benefit the school’s fundraising efforts for the Wounded Warriors Project.

Participants came together on the high school track to finish a 1-mile run, followed by a trip to the high school’s gym to complete 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups and 300 squats, followed by another 1-mile run.

Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy was a U.S. Navy Seal officer and the first recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War for his actions in the War in Afghanistan. He was born and raised in Suffolk County and after participating in several War on Terrorism missions, was killed in 2005 after his team was surrounded by Taliban forces. While in the Navy, he discovered CrossFit, creating his own CrossFit-style workout that involved running, pushing, pulling and lifting. The annual Murph Challenge has evolved into a workout that pays tribute to Lt. Murphy and to all fallen heroes.

Social studies teacher Joe Scioli, who started and runs the program at Bellport High School, said the event puts the actions of a local hero in perspective. “This challenge is a good way to make Memorial Day relevant to our students,” he said.

Class of 2020 graduate and student-athlete Joshua Leidig said he has participated in the event each year as a way to honor fallen heroes and the contributions of Lt. Murphy, calling the workout a tradition. Shaun Bolton, also a participant, described the event as a “bond that can’t be broken.”

Mr. Scioli thanked participants for contributing approximately $500 to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.
