With the end of the school year nearing, Bethpage High School recently announced seniors Stacy Kappel and Soham Maiti as the Class of 2019 Valedictorian and Salutatorian, respectively.

A pair of students that have been recognized for academic achievements throughout the school year, Stacy and Soham were both identified among the 15,000 finalists in the 64th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program in March after being named semifinalists in September.

Stacy is a member of the National Honor Society and Italian Honor Society at the high school. She plans to major in engineering when she begins college in the fall.

Soham intends on majoring in economics when he begins his collegiate studies. At Bethpage, he is the president of the Philosophy Club, team captain of the Ethics Club, an All-State musician, a founding member of the Chamber Orchestra, a Mathlete and a member of the National and Spanish Honor Societies.

“Stacy and Soham are great examples and role models for future graduates to look up to,” said Principal Nicholas Jantz. “Congratulations to them on being named the Valedictorian and Salutatorian of this year’s graduating class.”
