Abigail Balsamo
College: Cornell University
Plans to study: Undecided
Elementary school: James A. Dever
Best high school memory: When our football team made the playoffs this year, I’m on the Kickline team and we got to perform at Hofstra.
Activities:
Kickline, volleyball, academic honor societies
What will you miss most about North?: The school spirit. We have Competition Week and Pep Rally so I’ll miss that.
Plans for summer: I’m a lifeguard at the Valley Stream pool and I just got hired as a swim coach for the Valley Stream Swim Team.

Carl Colena
College: City College of New York
Plans to study: Electrical engineering
Elementary school: Howell Road
Best high school memory: How each teacher has their own personality and discussing topics with them. It’s interesting to get a gauge on how the real world is.
Activities: North Star, Interact Club, Ecology Club, academic honor societies
What will you miss most about North?: I’ll really miss the relatively close-knit community at North. It’s hard to find a school in an urban area where you know nearly every single person in your grade, as well as other neighboring grades.
Plans for summer: Hopefully get a job and get involved with the Valley Stream Community Band.
