WANTAGH HS LATINO STUDENTS WIN PRESTIGIOUS SCHOLARSHIP
Edwin Buhler and Celine Lopez, seniors at Wantagh High School, are each recipients of the New York Mets Latino Leaders Scholarship. The scholarship funds one course for a student of Latino descent enrolled in LIU Post’s High School Scholar’s Program. Both students will have fees waived for their College English class.
The LIU Post High School Honors Program allows high school students to take dual-credit courses to accelerate their college education. Students can take college-level courses while studying in their high school classroom.
The district congratulates Edwin and Celine on this academic accomplishment.
Through a commitment to educational excellence in a secure, supportive environment, the Wantagh Public Schools shall inspire students to develop a strong sense of individual worth and respect for others, to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers, and to fulfill themselves as concerned citizens in a diverse world.
