On June 11, four of Roland Clark's Writing Enrichment students from Merrick Avenue Middle School tested out their reporting and interviewing skills when they accompanied him to the BLI Summer Jam Concert at Nikon Jones Beach Theater and interviewed singer/songwriter, Rachel Platten.
Merrick Avenue student reporters included Emily Doscher, Alexis Feldman, Isabelle Kessler and Ariana Sambade.

After watching Rachel perform some of her top hits, the girls joined Platten in her dressing room to speak with her. The interview was part of their class writing project with Newsday’s Kidsday and can be viewed by visiting this URL,
