St. John’s Military School Leadership Camp began earlier this month with a number of exceptional students in attendance that have been chosen as cadet leaders to guide the corps for the 2013-14 school year, including Luke Whtting from Glen Head.
“Leadership Camp at St. John’s is an opportunity to provide a period of intense leadership training for the selected cadets that will assume student leadership responsibilities,” said
Andy England, president of St. John’s, a private military school in Kansas for young men in the sixth grade through high school. “They take classes in situational leadership, leadership ethics, motivational techniques, professionalism and take part in team-building activities.”
Adriana Rubertone, an incoming senior at North Shore High School, recently encouraged U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to give the keynote speech at the American Legion’s
Empire Girls State convention. In June, Rubertone was selected to attend the American Legion’s Empire Girls State convention, a prestigious annual leadership program for young women at SUNY Brockport. After discovering that a keynote speaker was not customary for the Girls State event, but the boys program usually featured a high-profile political guest speaker, Rubertone set out to correct the imbalance between the two programs.
August 9 9 marked the end of the 2013 Glen Cove After 3 Summer Program. It was also Showcase Day, and the program ended with great success.
This summer program was the program that almost didn’t happen, since no grant was received from New York State this year. Nonetheless, due to the dedication and commitment of the Glen Cove After 3 staff, the educational summer program ran with a vast variety of activities and trips offered all at a reasonable fee for parents.
The dedication of the staff and youth participation was made clear with the displays of creative and educational projects, many reflecting our theme on natural disasters.
While some in college still aren’t decided on what field they would like to pursue, a recent graduate at Finley Middle School in Glen Cove already is thinking about psychiatry and nursing school.
Roselle Cacio discovered her love for science in seventh grade while studying life science and decided to re-discover her interest in the field for five days during her summer.
Cacio, along with 23 other area high school students, recently took part in a Medical School/Camp Program sponsored by Adelphi University and Winthrop-University Hospital.
With the support of the United World Foundation and Irina Sushko, the Glen Cove After-3 students had a chance to visit the Cradle of Aviation. This was no ordinary trip, as the students experienced special classes and a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum. Some of the classes they attended were Living In Space, All About the Stars and a Rockets program.
