Due to their academic success and commitment to reporting and writing, Connetquot High School juniors Toni Gallo and Trinity Harper have been selected to take part in two prestigious journalism programs this upcoming July.  

While in attendance at the Summer Journalism Institute hosted at Stony Brook University, Toni will have the opportunity to work alongside seasoned journalists and explore the multimedia aspects of the career path, such as photography and videography. Additionally, she will be provided residency on campus and will be able to sample the college experience prior to possibly attending in the future. 

In a similar fashion, Trinity was accepted to the “Writing the Big City: Reporting in New York” Summer Academy at The School of The New York Times, based in Manhattan. During her time in the prestigious program, Trinity will be given the opportunity to fine-tune her skills in investigative journalism, along with attending workshops hosted by renowned journalists. 

The district, along with English teachers Alan Fertmann and Cheryl Sosa, congratulate the two students on their outstanding accomplishment.
