As a culmination of their work this year, 12th-graders at East Meadow High School presented their senior projects to fellow classmates, administrators and faculty at the school’s senior project fair.

Members of the Class of 2017 engaged in a real-life experience through an internship or community service placement over the course of the academic year. As part of the initiative, they completed a minimum of 25 hours in their placement, recorded hourly logs and wrote a research paper about their experience. They volunteered their time in a variety of vocational fields, including animal care, business, cosmetology, carpentry, education, health and law.

When presenting at the fair, the seniors discussed what they had learned and how the experience might impact their future as they begin their postsecondary plans. 

The district congratulates the students for their dedication and diligence and thanks the East Meadow High School faculty, staff and administration for coordinating this exceptional program.
