This past fall, Photography Forum magazine held its annual “Best of College Photography” celebrating exceptional artwork of high school and college art students. This year Sewanhaka High School students Joshua Kessler, Manpreet Kaur, and Marlena Santos became finalist in the contest.
Kessler is current enrolled in Sewanhaka’s media arts and digital design classes, While Kaur and Santos are currently enrolled in Sewanhaka’s AP 2D design class.
This is Santos’ second time being published in the magazine’s book and a well-deserved honor.
The students’ artwork will be published in the Photography Forum’s semiannual photography book and displayed at pfmagazine.com and on the school’s art department homepage.

Maybe not a scene from the rap song video, Thrift Shop, but the popular spot in Floral Park to score some of the best deals on lightly used goods and clothing, the United Methodist Church’s Thrift Shop, was just as exciting to watch when it re-opened to customers for the season. The thrift shop re-opened on Wednesday, Sept. 3 after being closed for the summer for restocking, cleaning and organizing the shelves and racks.
Thrift Shop Manager Dolores Rossi said more than nine volunteers helped throughout the summer to get the shop back into top shape for its re-opening, including her 17-year-old grandsons, Andrew Rossi of Floral Park and Jake Kennedy of New Hyde Park.

She was on a mission and began paging through the pictures and names of her beloved classmates. She decided to look through the phone book for familiar names. She said, “I kept in contact with many of my girlfriends so I started looking for the men first.”
