Kennedy’s Hugh Cheung Recognized as Young Math Scholar

Hugh Cheung, a ninth-grader Kennedy High School, is among the 84 students this year selected as a Long Island Young Scholar of Mathematics.
This designation grants him acceptance into the Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students to pursue mathematics and mathematical science applications.

“Hugh has been a tremendous asset to our classroom from the start of the school year,” said his math teacher Kerri Andree. “He brings great insight to our lessons and is constantly searching for a deeper understanding of mathematics. It is a pleasure to help guide a student, such as Hugh, that clearly enjoys and appreciates his education. He has a promising future in mathematics and we are all very proud of him and his accomplishments.”
The Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students is one of the most competitive programs in the nation. Selection by the institute implies that a student is among the top one-tenth of 1 percent of all students in mathematics on Long Island in their grade.

Introspective Art Commemorates Hispanic Heritage Month at Kennedy

Franca Fiorentino’s college Spanish class at John F. Kennedy High School celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with a series of art appreciation lessons involving Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

Kahlo was best known for her self-portraits where she highlighted Mexican national and indigenous culture and traditions. Students learned about the artist, her works and how they relate to the culture. The lesson culminated with a self-portrait project that will express elements of students’ own heritages.

“We discussed how they felt about their identities and how they would show that through their own self-portraits,” Fiorentino said.

NAfME awards more than $2,000 in scholarships each year to chapters that demonstrate exceptional service and leadership.
