Some of the Brightest and Best students from a total of 15 long Island area schools, were inducted into the National Achievers Society at the Huntington Hilton on Saturday, June 8, 2013. Thanks to the Urban League of Long Island Young Professionals for spearheading this annual event and giving Long Islanders the opportunity to sponsor hard-working students from grades 3 through 12 for induction into the National Achievers Society. Congratulations to all inductees, their parent, guardians and teachers!
With so many unsung achievers in communities throughout the country, it is incumbent on local and national organizations, as well as individuals, to take full advantage of this and similar opportunities to formally acknowledge and celebrate the achievement of our youth by sponsoring them for induction.
A special acknowledgement goes to the following inductees who participated in the 3rd Annual Self-Empowering Workshop for College Bound 9-12th Grade Students and their Parents, hosted by Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. in April 2013.
