Plainview Student Named Intel Semifinalist

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District is proud to announce that John F. Kennedy High School student Reva Butensky has been named a semifinalist in the 2014 Intel Science Talent Search.

Reva earned the highly prestigious honor for the outstanding research in medicine and health that she conducted at Michigan State University during the summer of 2013.

“We are extremely proud of Reva’s accomplishment. It is a shining outcome for the exceptional efforts demonstrated by students and staff in our research program,” said Dr. Lorna Lewis, Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District Superintendent of Schools. “We are fortunate to have a community that fully supports great programs for our students.”

In 2013, Reva was selected to participate in the High School Honor Science Program at Michigan State University, where she pursued her research on the Evaluation of Novel Polyacrylamide Gel for Studies on Biological Redox Reactions.

In addition to her comprehensive research, Reva is currently on JFK High School’s Executive Board of Student Government and Vice President of the High School, Varsity Captain of the Quiz Bowl Team, President of the National Honor Society, Managing Editor of the Hawkeye School Newspaper, Co-President of the Science Honor Society, Secretary of the Mathletes Team, Mechanical Engineer of the F.I.R.S.T Robotics & Engineering Club and a member of the Drastic Measures A Cappella Group and the Spanish Honor Society.

The Intel Science Talent Search is the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition. Previous Intel semifinalists and finalists have made extraordinary contributions to the sciences and hold many of the world’s most coveted honors in math and science, including the Nobel Prize and the National Medal of Science.

All semifinalists, including Reva, will receive a $1,000 award for their research. Forty finalists from the current group of semifinalists will be invited to the 2013 Intel Finalist stage in Washington, D.C. in March 2014. The students will have their research displayed to the public and judged in the final round. In addition, the students will meet with notable scientists and compete for the top award of $100,000.

Founded in 1995 by owner Bruce Grossman, the Cultural Arts Playhouse of Plainview is a year round, regional, off-off Broadway-style theater that has produced over 500 productions including educational and touring shows. It is also located in Roslyn Heights and Wantagh.

Named as one of Long Island’s Best Live Theaters, the theater serves more than 20,000 people each year with its professional adult productions, children’s theater performances, and theater education classes for ages 7-18. Artistic Director Tony Frangipane took time out of his busy schedule to talk theater.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
