Students Recognized as Winners in Writing Contest

New Hyde Park Memorial High School 12th graders Carrie Mun and Kathleen Gray received second place recognitions for their participation in the Martin J. Kelly Writing Contest of the Irish Cultural Society. Certificates, along with a monetary award, were mailed to their homes.

This year’s contest challenged students to incorporate Early Modern English phraseology into a contemporary setting, such as rewriting school rules/regulations.

Carrie is to attend the University of Vermont, and Kathleen is to attend the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the fall.
