New Hyde Park Memorial High School recently announced Brittany Willoughby and Mahmoud Seweid as its students of the month.
Willoughby is a student in the Advanced Placement United States Government class. She has had a great year, consistently receiving terrific grades. In the classroom she was a model student, leading the class in discussion as well as asking thoughtful and incisive questions.
Willoughby can be counted on to make connections between the curriculum and the everyday world, making her an excellent role model for student and teacher alike. In addition, she is meticulously organized and efficient. She used these attributes to help others with their notes, keep students who were out of class up-to-date on assignments and organized study sessions throughout the year.
Seweid sat at the top of his class in English. He is always outspoken and a consummate participant in class. His engagement in every lesson was motivating to his peers. His passion for English is contagious, as his wit and analysis continually drives class discussion. Seweid is an example of what a student should be: he is diligent, passionate about his education, and amicable to his peers.
