Editorial: New Tribune Editor

Greetings,

My name is Michael Scro, and as of this week, I am officially the new editor for the Syosset-Jericho Tribune.

I am a life-long resident of Long Island, and am honored to serve the communities of Syosset, Jericho, Woodbury, Muttontown, Brookville and Old Brookville.  

As a graduate of St. Anthony’s High School and Hofstra University, I pledge to the residents that I, as well as my colleagues at Anton Community Newspapers, will work to bring you only truthful, insightful and relevant news.

I began my writing experience out of Hofstra freelancing for various news outlets, where I covered a wide range of reporting areas, including sports, local government, profiles, special features, human interest and business.  If nothing else, it has taught me to listen to the community I’m reporting on, and if I’m going to bring them a story - do it right.

With the explosion of the Internet, and more recently mobile phones, news is becoming increasingly local and instantaneous.  The community wants to know what is happening in the neighborhood, school district and town - whether it’s something to be celebrated or an issue to be addressed.

I encourage anyone to contact me if they wish to introduce themselves, and begin a working relationship.  My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I look forward to bringing you the news.

- Michael Scro

News

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
