On Monday, Nov. 30, two seniors from Liberty High School, Danielle Rabadi and Gillian Williams attended the Sullivan County School Board Association annual late fall dinner to speak about what learning looks like at Liberty Central School District.
The dinner, held at Monticello Central School District, was open to all superintendents, principals and board members from every school district in Sullivan County.
Students from each district were selected and asked to present a speech that discusses his or her experiences at school and how those experiences helped mold them into the young adults they are today.
“Life at Liberty has allowed me to develop leadership skills needed to further friendships and success in college and beyond,” said Danielle.
In her speech, Danielle talked about how a stronger focus on academics can improve upon the foundation that the district has built, while Gillian focused on the ways that Liberty’s teachers and course offerings have prepared her and her friends for college.
“I spoke to several alumni while preparing my speech,” she said. “We all agree that our years at Liberty prepared us for life after high school. I feel ready for college.”
“It was a special evening,” said Liberty Middle/High School Principal Jack Strassman. “It was great to hear a variety of students talk about the strengths of schools in Sullivan County.”Visit the district's Facebook page for a preview of Danielle and Gillian's speeches.
