Davison Avenue was proud to welcome journalist and author Cheryl Wills to our school on Mar. 24.

Ms. Wills is an award-winning journalist who has been with NY1 News since 1992. Her life changed in in 2009 when looking into her family history on she discovered her great-great-great grandfather Sandy Wills.

She told us the story of how Sandy was taken from his family and sold into slavery at age 10. After years of hard work and no chance for education he was freed in 1863 when Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Feeling pride in America, he went on to join the United States Colored Troops, where he served until the war’s end in 1865. Once he left the Army, he settled down and raised a large family.

During her presentation, she shared many stories from her own life with us, including a photo gallery of famous people she has interviewed that has the student erupting in cheers. She took questions from our students and concluded the presentation by unveiling an original print of the Emancipation Proclamation that hand signed by Abraham Lincoln himself!

Since the amazing discovery of her family lineage, Ms. Wills has published three books: “Die Free”, children’s book “The Emancipation of Grandpa Sandy Wills: and the soon to be published illustrated children’s book “Emancipated: My Family’s Fight for Freedom.”

Thank you, Ms. Wills, for an enjoyable, inspirational and educational visit.

College Day

College Day Photo Collage thumbnail244204

Malverne High School put higher education in focus as College Day brought together admissions representatives, teachers and alumni to help students prepare to make important decisions about life after high school.

Seniors spent time with advisors, alumni and teacher panels to learn more about college life, including financial aid, the transition process, Greek life, networking and more. As always, Student Support Services were on hand to provide information and help with student specific questions and concerns.

Grades 9-11 spent time meeting representatives from area colleges, trade schools and unions who were assembled in the gym and visiting classrooms for more detailed presentations.

Over 16 alumni members participated and over 30 colleges and universities were represented including SUNY Binghamton and Oswego, Hunter College, Adelphi University, Farmingdale State University, University of Connecticut, Syracuse University, St. John’s University, Siena College and more.

Thanks to our #Unstoppable staff for making this incredible day possible for our students!

“Something Rotten!” Is Pure Fun

Staff, cast and crew of “Something Rotten!” thumbnail243361

Congratulations to the staff, cast and crew of “Something Rotten!” who presented a decidedly fresh, funny and ridiculously farcical take on Shakespeare and had audiences laughing hysterically during three performances on Friday and Saturday at HTH!

The dazzling cast sang and danced their way through this over-the-top ode to hit musicals that skewers the idea that anything, including Hamlet, is sacred.

The crew handled the lights and sound perfectly and the stage design and costuming were world-class!

Enjoy these photos taken during an exclusive preview for local senior citizens that took place on Wednesday afternoon.

Our students got in the spirit of the 100th day of school by dressing and acting as if they were 100 years old!

There were lots of bowties, wigs, canes and glasses, and even some suspenders, pocket watches and at least one life alert button!

The students were fully in character, complaining about their backs, chatting with their fellow “seniors” and telling back in my day stories!

What a great way to celebrate a fun milestone!
