New York State Assemblyman Steve Stern visited Harborfields High School on Nov. 22 to present proclamations to 11 seniors who had been selected last year for the American Legion Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary Girls State summer leadership and citizenship programs. Recognized for this achievement were Chad Berlent, Quintin Gegwich, Anna Gosselin, Wyatt LaFountaine, Christian McNally, Andrew Palermo, Nicholas Ruisi, Nicolas Saliou, Jack Steel, William Sullivan and Moore Theobald.

“I think anyone who has ever been associated with the Boys and Girls State program in any way knows they will still be talking about it years and years from now,” Stern told the students. “Your experience benefits all of us, because we all know what a tremendous opportunity you will have, and what outstanding leaders you are all going to be, whatever you choose to do, and that’s great for all of us as a community.”

The high school's ANGLE Christian Club recently held a fundraiser for Samaritan’s Purse program Operation Christmas Child program. Just before Thanksgiving, the students packed 20 shoeboxes with useful toys and supplies. Many of the gifts for needy children were purchased by the club’s students themselves, while some were donated by other students and staff.

“The ANGLE Christian Club tries to find projects that tie into the members’ faith,” adviser Carolann Essig said. “Realizing that many children do not have Christmas was their inspiration. It was so nice to see the students work together to brighten the lives of others.”
