HS Student Journalists Attend Mock Press Conference


High School newspaper staff members Katherine Cho, Rebecca Fox, Kaitlyn Hart, Fabiha Khan, Catherine Taipe and Alejandro Villa Vasquez attended an April 27 mock press conference with New York State Assemblymen Chad A. Lupinacci and Andrew Raia. Accompanied by newspaper advisers Christine Murphy and Luciana Restivo, the students were able to ask questions about current issues such as LGBT rights, the heroin epidemic, gang violence on Long Island and changes in education.

“We are so proud of the professionalism our students exhibited during this event as they gained knowledge of the journalistic process,” said Murphy.
