CHESTERTOWN - The two Seniors academically at North Warren High School have exhibited a variety of talents in their highly successful high school careers, whether it is in athletic, musical, or academic pursuits.
The faculty and staff of North Warren are proud of these two outstanding students as well as the entire Class of 2010, Principal Theresa Andrew said this week.
The Valedictorian for the Class of 2010 is Jeffrey Bennett, son of Nancy and John Bennett of Chestertown.
Jeffrey's exceptional athletic achievements have paralleled his remarkable academic performance in high school. Jeffrey has served as an integral component of the Cross Country, Basketball and Baseball teams for four consecutive years. He has been a member of Varsity Club for the past two years. In terms of musical talent, his Saxophone skills have been demonstrated in Jazz Band, Senior Band and Marching Band, in which he's been a standout performer for four years. He has earned high awards in NYSSMA Jazz performance competition, and participated in All-County Jazz Band during 10th and 11th grade. Also, he also played a lead role in last year's school musical production of "Anything Goes."
A leader among his peers, Jeff has also served as Class President and Treasurer for each year during high school. He has served as Student Council Treasurer, SADD Member, and the founder for the Adirondack Skywatchers, an astronomy club he actively participates in.
Jeff has also served as an invaluable team member of the Envirothon, Quizbowl and Rube Goldberg competitions. He was also recognized as the 2010 Capital Area School District Association representative for North Warren. Jeffrey plans to study Astronomy at Cornell University this fall.
North Warren's Salutatorian for 2010 is Laura Fahey, daughter of Stephen Fahey of Adirondack.
