As the summer drifts to a close, Joseph Traverso, class speaker from Saint Cyril and Methodius' graduating class of 2016 is gearing up for his first day at St. Anthony's High School in Huntington. Reminiscing about his time at SSCM from when he stepped through the doors of the school for his first day of Pre-K ten years ago, Joseph reflected upon how SSCM has prepared him, since day one, for the exciting challenges ahead at St. Anthony's. According to Joseph, "SSCM's teachers have taught me life skills I will never forget...even sacrificing their own after-school time to help us prepare for our high school entrance exams."

Among an impressive list of accomplishments, Joseph was recognized during SSCM's Graduation Ceremony, for his excellence in the field of science. He received a awards for participating as an Altar Server and in SSCM's School Band. He was the recipient of the Monsignor Rooney scholarship, a Parents Association scholarship, the SSCM Senior Club scholarship and was the winner of the SSCM 2016 Cyrilian Award.

While exceeding academic expectations throughout his time at SSCM, Joseph simultaneously poured himself into a wide variety of extracurricular activities, participating in Honor Band, Children's Choir, Altar Service, volunteering at annual Breakfasts with Santa, holding leading roles in the school's Drama Club and Shakespeare Festival performances and competing in SSCM's Cross Country Team against other Long Island schools in the Catholic Middle School Athletic Association’s (CMSAA) throughout Middles School. This type of involvement throughout the years has made Joseph the well-rounded student he is and we wish him every success as he embarks on the next segment of his academic career!
