The students at Centereach High School never fail to make us proud. Recently, three of our own sophomores have won second place at the EDNY Moot Court Competition. In July 2016, the Eastern District of New York Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, partnered with the District Court for the Eastern District of New York and the Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, to introduce this civics program. Students take part in a week long seminar, hosted by federal court and federal judges, through which they are introduced to the federal court and criminal justice system. As a result, they develop basic advocacy skills which promote responsible citizenry! Eubube, Mikaella, Jacklyn and Isabella took part in this amazing program and learned some very important skills. These girls took a step forward in achieving their goals! In doing so, they have further inspired us to reach toward our own goals and to play an active role in our society!!
