Working as ambassadors for peace and acceptance, five secondary students from the Three Village Central School District recently were selected to participate in this year’s Suffolk County Long Island’s Leaders of Tomorrow Conference. 

The conference was facilitated by the organization, Erase Racism, and focused on preparing high school students to become leaders and advocates in the fight for equity within Long Island public schools.

Throughout the workshop, the students attendees – Jennifer Cabrera (ninth-grader, Murphy), Katelyn Giordano (ninth-grader, Gelinas), Meredith Bushman (junior, Ward Melville High School), Katherine Woo (junior, Ward Melville High School) and Renee Clairvoyant (senior, Ward Melville High School) – engaged in interactive dialogues, workshops and leadership development training. Topics explored included the history of specific policies, techniques for embracing diversity and outlets for student advocacy.
