As you might expect, the talent displayed on our Performing Arts Center stage when our Theater Honor Society performed Grease, was accentuated by equal amounts of compassion and community service that very same day. On Saturday, afternoon April 25, our Walt Whitman High School students and staff opened their cafeteria and their hearts to our senior citizens, presenting the annual Spring Fling for all to enjoy. This wonderful event provided a gala prom for our community's cherished senior citizens, and connected the generations in a heartwarming manner. We thank advisor Liz Leogrande and her team of students for demonstrating the character and commitment to community values that makes South Huntington special.
