Student Delegates for PRHYLI

Ms. Haik and Mr. Cappizzano proudly recognized Valeria Bruzual, Roberto Vasquez Aparicio, Wendy Morales Cruz, and Maria Paiva for their participation in PRHYLI.

We are proud to acknowledge seniors Valeria Bruzual, Roberto Vasquez Aparicio, Wendy Morales Cruz, and Maria Paiva for their participation in the Puerto Rican Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute (PRHYLI). These student delegates were selected from Walt Whitman to participate in this program that focuses mainly on the identification and research of local issues, parliamentary procedures, selected bills, and study of the NYS legislative process.


In participating in this program, these students have the opportunity to create partnerships and conversations among educators, business leaders, elected officials, and other students to develop in-depth knowledge of the state legislative process. It helps to strengthen our students' abilities to interact with positive role models and develop leadership skills within Latino/Hispanic Youth in order to refine and apply them back in their local communities by putting their skills to practice.


“This year was one of the most special groups of kids because they all get along really well,” said ENL Teacher, Luigi Cappizzano. “They support each other and are so different in their own ways, but all contribute so much and in very different ways.” Each of these selected students are proud immigrants and members of the National Honor Society where they prove to excel academically and within their community.


We are proud of Valeria, Robert, Maria and Wendy for their participation and great work! We look forward to their continued involvement in PRHYLI at the annual Legislative Conference, set to be held virtually in March as it remains the largest gathering of Puerto Rican/Hispanic civic and political leaders in the state.
