CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Skyler Paccio, Junior in Bethpage High School. His Teen Literature teacher Maria Whalen entered one of Skyler's creative writing pieces to The Alice Hoffman Young Writers Retreat at Adelphi University in July for 1 week to work with professional writers. It was an amazing opportunity. Out of a couple of hundred Nassau County applicants, only 30 Juniors were selected. Skyler was 1 of 30 selected student and he earned a full scholarship (all expenses paid). Way to Go Skyler!!!
