As the clock struck seven, people from the Huntley Community all gathered, squeezing into the room where the April board of education meeting was taking place. Students from all grades were here today to be recognized for their hard work, from elementary to high school.

To start the night, three HHS students, seniors Kyle Carberry and Cameron McCall and junior Rebekah Green, were invited to lead the pledge of allegiance. Just like every month, these students got the chance to sit in the board members’ chairs and answer questions about their futures after HHS.

“I hope that whatever I do will be centered in philanthropy and international development,” said McCall.

All three students agreed that what they would miss most about Huntley is the sense of community and the familiar faces all around them. When they go off to college, they will be surrounded by strangers from all over the country, so having a familiar community is definitely something they will miss.

After the pledge and questions, the Young Author’s awards given to elementary and middle school students. Eight students from District 158 were selected out of the 150 stories entered. The kids were all excited to shake hands with the board members and receive medals for their accomplishments.

Next up on the agenda were the four students who were recognized for placing in the state wrestling tournament. Daniel Valeria and Matthew Burba from Heineman and David Ferrante and Sam Spencer from Marlowe Middle School.

“We had a fairly successful season, we finished in the top half of the events we had competed in,” said wrestling coach Mike Ginczycki. “This team was very fortunate to be led by these two fine individuals.”
