Amityville Memorial High School has announced the valedictorian and salutatorian of the Class of 2017. Esteban Idrovo Ponce has achieved the top ranking with a weighted grade point average of 112.13, and Lawrence Haave earned the second spot in the class with a GPA of 106.45.

Esteban, who plans to major in physics in college, is parliamentarian of the National Honor Society, vice president of the National World Language Honor Society, president of the Key Club and treasurer of the Drama Club. He has also been an active member of student government, the Debate Club, the Puerto Rican Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute, Mathletes and the track and field team while serving as a tutor and a volunteer with the Amityville Fire Department. 

Lawrence, also planning to pursue a career in physics, is president of the National Honor Society, vice president of the Drama Club, past president of the Key Club and a member of WAC PAC, the National World Language Honor Society and student government. He is a founder of AVTV, a film-creating club at the school, and has also volunteered his time as a tutor.

Both seniors are enrolled in the district’s science research program, and are participating in research internships at Farmingdale State College. Esteban has been working with several complex software programs, while Lawrence is working with computer programming languages and studying data from active satellites to learn about massive galaxy clusters. 

“Esteban and Lawrence have demonstrated exemplary leadership skills at Amityville Memorial High School,” said Acting Principal Dr. Lois Etzel. “We congratulate them on their achievements, both inside and outside of the classroom, and are proud to have them representing the Class of 2017.”

The Amityville Union Free School District congratulates the boys varsity track team for its accomplishments at the New Balance Nationals on March 12. The 800-meter relay team of Terrance Hinds, Jowell Dixon, Emmanuel Oguntoye and Kerron Gonzales placed sixth in the Emerging Elite.

Emmanuel capped off an amazing season by competing in the championship triple jump and placing fifth in the United States to earn the title of All-American. He is the only track athlete in Suffolk over the past 30 years that held the New York State No. 1 ranking the entire season and capped it off with the state title.

The team, which won the county championship and had several students compete at the state meet, was coached by Reynolds Hawkins. He was recently named the Suffolk County coach of the year.
