Congratulations to Our Newest Published Authors

On Thursday, May 8, 2014, twenty six students from KCHS gathered at Somers High School to celebrate the 9th annual book launch of On My Mind. This book gives young men and women a chance to express those thoughts that might otherwise go unspoken. The topics range from humorous and light hearted to sad and gut wrenching.  On My Mind, made possible by the Northeast Westchester Rotary Club, contains writings from both suburban and inner city high school students. As in past years, our authors and their families had the opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow writers from other participating schools, as well as to listen to some readings from this year’s edition.  The New York Times called this undertaking, “A remarkable effort to bridge the void between poor and rich, urban and suburban, in a way that almost never occurs.”  Congratulations go out to Aileen Burt, Alexis-Nicole Thanasoulis, Amanda Paige Diaz, Arielle Estevez, Ayo Ayodeji, Brian Kelly, Danielle Diaz, Esteban Ramirez, Flora Xavier, Imani Campbell, Jenny Weisberger, Joselin Pichasaca, Julia Paul, Kevin Buron, Kristina Durham, Lucy Hernandez, Mary-Kate Silverberg, Marlana Kitsakos, Tara O’Hagan, Rachel Grabowski, Mikey Rodriguez, Tara Heslin-Scott, Steven Tenezaka, Emma Cappellino, Thomas Eyring, and William Harrison.  We look forward to next year!
