Ten East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School middle school students attended the third annual Long Island Consortium for Excellence and Equity Summit “I dream, I lead, I Rise on May 21. 

The students, along with Assistant Principal TJ Terranova, guidance counselor Jim O’Driscoll and seventh-grade social studies teacher Joyce Kenny, had an enlightened time attending various workshops about student empowerment, making sound choices, overcoming obstacles, respect and finding one’s passion. The skills and lessons learned will last a lifetime; and middle school staff will continue to focus on building strong positive character traits as they move forward with the students.
