Suffolk County Legislator Lou D’Amaro honored the winner of the Suffolk County 2017 “The Truth About Energy Drinks” PSA Contest at their Legislative session on Tuesday, June 6th. Walt Whitman’s graphics and video production teacher Ms. Erica Raji is pleased to report that Animation and Video student Danielle Henneborn is the 1st place winner of this countywide competition.

“Stimulant drinks can damage your organs,” said this talented tenth-grader. “I’ve always enjoyed art and I’m very interested in graphic design and animation, so this was a great opportunity to tell a story through animation.” When Danielle isn’t busy with her studies at Whitman she is actively involved as a Girl Scout Ambassador.
