VALEDICTORIAN and SALUTATORIAN
Congratulations to Ryan Englander, son of Mark and Elle Englander of Suffield, on being named Valedictorian for the class of 2014. Ryan has excelled in his courses, both here at Suffield High School and at the Greater Hartford Academy of Math and Science. Accepted into UCONN's prestigious Combined Program in Medicine, Ryan has yet to decide where he will matriculate in the fall.
Congratulations also to Yonina Bykov, daughter of Anthony and Ella Bykov of Suffield, on being named Salutatorian for the class of 2014. An active member in both our National Honor Society and World Language Honor Society, Yonina plans to study Biological Sciences with a focus on research and has been accepted at many prominent colleges. Yonina has not made a decision about what school she will attend yet, but is excited about the future.
The Suffield Science Fair Club performed superbly during the recent 66th Annual Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair at Quinnipiac University.
Suffield students earned a number of noteworthy honors. This is the second year that our advisor, Mr. Charkiewicz, has led a successful contingent to this prestigious event.
Students earned recognition as finalists in their categories, but they also earned notice when it came to special awards.
Sophomore Matt Rogers won three awards: the Energize/UI/Alternative Energy Award, Barnes Aerospace Applied Technology Award, and Education Connection-Applied Skills Award. Fellow sophomore Lukas Baker won the Connecticut Architecture Foundation Award. Finally, the freshmen team of Katie Baker and Caitie Kirschbaum was a Dominion Nuclear Physical Science finalist.
In the Physical Sciences Category, the team of Katie Baker and Caitie Kirschbaum won first honors. Matt won second honors as did the team of seniors Erin McGann and Martha Beringer. Ronnie Augeri and a pair of teams – the one of Paul Grimard and Anthony DeVita as well as the one of Brent Heineman and Chris Ellithorpe – won third honors. Junior Kyle Zielinski earned third honors in the Life Sciences Category.
Denisa Urbanski has earned the President’s Volunteer Service Award. The award honors Americans of all ages who have volunteered “significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their countries.” The prestigious award is given to Prudential Spirit of Community winners who have met the requirements.
Denisa, who plans to pursue nursing, has spent extensive time over the past several years volunteering at Johnson Memorial Hospital in Stafford Springs. She helped patients in a variety of departments, including emergency. She also is member of Best Buddies here at school, and she participates in numerous other community service activities. Thanks to Denisa for helping others by volunteering and also by setting an example of service.
Divya Subramanian and Asa Carpenter were cited with Girls State and Boys State honors, respectively. The organizations run separate programs that allow students to spend an intensive week together as self-governing members of a community. The experience prompts students to formulate and maintain all types of government services needed by a society.
Mason Beiter has been nominated for the “Heart of the Arts” Award. With this award, the National Federation of State High School Associations seeks to recognize individuals who exemplify the “heart of the arts” According to the organization, students, adults or groups associated with any of a high school’s performing arts programs can be selected. Honorees can be cited for, among other attributes, assisting others beyond all expectations.
SUFFIELD'S MATH TEAM
Suffield's Math team, lead by Coach Mark Janick, is ranked 3rd in the Einstein Division. The team has done well this year and will be moving on to States. One of our team members Lukas Baker, a current Suffield High Sophomore, is ranked third in the state for underclassman and in the top 20 for all grade levels. This is an amazing accomplishment for Lukas and the rest of the math team.
ACADEMIC QUIZ TEAM
The SHS Academic Quiz Team qualified for nationals at the State Regional History Bowl in Newtown on March 15th. The team, consisting of seniors Benjamin Gee, Ryan Englander, junior Erin McGann, and sophomores Joseph Howarth and Lukas Baker, will be heading to Washington, D.C. the last weekend of April to compete at the National History Bowl along with 200 other teams from across the country.
