RNHS Class of 2020 Honored With Drive-In Commencement Ceremony

RNHS Class of 2020 Honored With Drive-In Commencement Ceremony thumbnail172759

Rye Neck High School celebrated the Class of 2020 with a special drive-in ceremony at Rye Playland on June 18. The socially distanced event featured remarks by valedictorian Grace West and salutatorian Heonjae Lee, as well as video presentations that looked back at some of the students’ most memorable experiences throughout their educational journey.

Principal Tina Wilson welcomed the guests and praised the students for their ability to persevere, and remain engaged and motivated despite being challenged – individually, as a family unit, as a school community and as a society – by the pandemic.

“While we might be separated by the metal and glass your cars are made of, I am beyond elated to be physically in the same location as all of you,” Wilson said. “Even with digital communication tools that have enabled us to remain connected, I am certain we all realized just how much we missed and craved face-to-face human interaction.”

As they move into the next phase of their lives, Wilson encouraged the students to embrace the positive rather than the negative aspects of any situation. She assured them they possess the necessary skills to successfully pivot in the face of future challenges.

In her remarks, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Barbara Ferraro reflected on the students’ creativity, generosity, strength of character and ability to confront each challenge with courage and flexibility.

“Your leadership has been evident during this pandemic,” she said. “Your outreach to help those in need, your support of our district’s younger students and your concern for one another have reinforced the uniqueness of your class, illustrating the power and strength of teamwork and collaboration.”

The graduates also heard from County Executive George Latimer and guest keynote speaker Ryan Pennell, a RNHS Class of 2010 graduate. During her valedictory address, West spoke about the power of gratitude and recognized the people in her life – parents, teachers, coaches, friends – who have inspired her and guided her throughout the years.

“Gratitude is an expression that allows you to recognize things that are good,” she said. “It’s a spotlight that shines on the people that inspire you. As we all go forth to the next chapter in our lives, take a second, a minute, an hour to think about the people that have made you who you are.”

In his salutatory address, Lee reflected on the value of community and their common experiences that have motivated them to pursue their goals. He also recognized his fellow classmates’ outstanding achievements – from taking Advanced Placement courses to delving into their interests, learning the value of teamwork through athletic competitions and games.

“We are a small class – Rye Neck’s smallest in several years – but our achievements are certainly not,” he said. “It has been my greatest honor and privilege to learn, explore and grow alongside my fellow graduates for the past 12 years at Rye Neck. My heart is so full.”

One by one, and after years of hard work and dedication, the students stepped out of their vehicles to take hold of their diplomas and take their first steps as Rye Neck High School alumni.

Escorted by police cars with flashing lights and sirens, members of Rye Neck High School’s Class of 2020 traveled from Harbor Island to the middle/high school campus in a car parade on June 16. Having decorated their vehicles with balloons and signs, the students waved and smiled at spectators along the route.

A crowd of teachers, staff, administrators, village and town officials greeted the graduating seniors on campus, where Principal Tina Wilson read the name of each student. Special thanks to Village of Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy, Village Manager Jerry Barberio and the village's fire and police departments for their partnership.


Students Earn Community Service Award for Composting

Four Rye Neck High School students – seniors Sonia Finkenberg, Jonathan Marcuse and Owen Robertson, and junior Dylan Spencer – have been honored with a 2020 St. Vincent’s Youth Award for their commitment to serving their community.

Having started ASAP Scraps Composting Inc., a nonprofit community compost pickup service, in May 2019, the students have been instrumental in making their community more sustainable.

“It feels very rewarding to be honored with this award, as we have put in hundreds of hours of community service into building this business, and it is a great feeling to be recognized for this accomplishment,” said Marcuse, CEO and president of ASAP Scraps Composting. “We will keep the spirit of this award close to us as we continue to benefit our communities for our whole life.”

After realizing that their village’s composting system was underutilized because it required residents to bring their compost to the recycling center, the students launched a service to eliminate that inconvenience. Each week, they collect and deliver composting for community members who register for a nominal monthly fee. Any profit beyond operating expenses is donated to environmental charities.

“Seeing the impact that we have made on our community through both the volume of compost we have delivered and the money we have raised is extremely rewarding to us,” Marcuse said. “Our plan would be to replicate our business model in other towns in order to achieve the same success. The greater impact we have, the more rewarded we will feel.”

Each week, the four students drive to each of their 68 subscribing households – a list that continues to grow – to collect the compost. They empty the individual compost bins into a larger collection bin before driving to the village’s recycling center, where they unload all compost into the municipal collection bins. To date, they have collected approximately 9,500 gallons of compost, or the equivalent of 3.2 concrete mixer trucks, 50 hot tubs or 220 bathtubs.

"To most, food scraps seem gross, but, for me, I find the buckets of waste absolutely beautiful,” said Finkenberg, CCO of ASAP Scraps Composting. “I love being part of a much bigger environmental movement, so physically picking up food scraps has been so rewarding.”

Finkenberg, Marcuse, Robertson and Spencer are the organization’s founding members, along with Daniel Ricci, a Class of 2019 graduate.

Presented by St. Vincent’s Auxiliary, the 2020 St. Vincent’s Youth Awards recognize high school students whose volunteer service exemplifies St. Vincent’s Hospital Westchester’s core values of respect, integrity, compassion and excellence.

Rye Neck High School student Naomi Young has been selected as one of the top three winners in the Palace Theatre’s 2020 Emerging Young Artist Scholarship Awards for her original, one-act play, “Twentyfour.”

“I’m so proud of Naomi,” theater director Scott Harris said. “In her three years as a Rye Neck High School theater student, she has taken intermediate acting and advanced acting classes, played leading and supporting roles in our musicals and also served as a Thespian Officer.”

Young’s play will be presented via a Zoom reading, performed by professional actors later this month. She is the third Rye Neck student to be selected for this prestigious honor.

“These consistent wins really demonstrate the talent and hard work of Rye Neck’s theater students,” Harris said.

In addition, Young was selected as a winner of the Student Monologue Challenge by the Manhattan Theatre Club, a major producer of Broadway and Off-Broadway theater in New York City, for an original monologue.
