On June 5, Tappan Zee High School seniors Vinny Barikyan, Katrina Lupi, Nina Ventura and Elizabeth Chesterman were recognized by the United Way of Rockland for their service to the county as members of the Youth United Way Club.

The four student leaders kept members informed and engaged in service opportunities through the United Way of Rockland and served on its student executive board. “These students were instrumental in getting a Youth United Way club started here at Tappan Zee three years ago,” reports advisor Chris Lorusso. “We were the second school in the county to start one. They’ve represented TZ and the South Orangetown community well and will missed next year!
