Carey High School named its valedictorian and salutatorian for the Class of 2010. David Nieves is the class valedictorian and Jeremy Poserio is the class salutatorian when the class graduates this coming June.
Academically, David is unmatched in every subject area. He simply has raised the bar and left many students shaking in awe as they witnessed his academic excellence. What is most impressive about David is that he is humble and modest and never boosts of his accomplishments. He is kind, considerate, and respectful and truly can be defined as a role model for others to emulate.
In recognition of his scholastic accomplishments, David has been inducted into the National, Science, Math, Foreign Language, and the Career & Technical Education Honor Societies. As this year’s president of the National Honor Society, David will be influential in organizing the school’s peer tutoring program. David is the current treasurer of the Foreign Language Honor Society, a volunteer for the Franklin Square Morton Civic Association, an altar server, a journalist for the Carey Clipper, and a member of the senior high Mathletes.
A three-season athlete, David is a participant on the varsity football team and the varsity winter and spring track teams. It’s astonishing how David oftentimes does not return home from school until very late, but yet still remains number one.
David went beyond the realm of high school this past summer when he was selected and attended the highly prestigious and competitive Latino Leadership Seminar at the University of Notre Dame. In addition, David attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine at Villanova University. These experiences further solidified his passionate career goal of someday becoming a doctor.
Jeremy, the class salutatorian, is one of the most exceptional students the Carey community has ever known. With sincere modesty, Jeremy strives for excellence in all he does. A leader and a scholar, Jeremy is the president of the Foreign Language Honor Society, treasurer of the National Honor Society, and a member of the Math, Science, and Career & Technical Education Honor Societies.
An insightful debater with a sophisticated global view of the world, Jeremy has won many competitions in Carey’s Model United Nations program. His views are further expressed as a writer and contributor to the school’s newspaper and arts and literary magazine.
As a volunteer at Long Island Jewish Medical Hospital, Jeremy is dedicated to service and has a sincere concern for others. In addition, he continues to offer his help and guidance as a peer mediator and a tutor to the younger students of Carey.
This past summer, Jeremy attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine at Villanova, which further solidified his interest in the medical field. Jeremy is an all around fantastic student and person who has exceeded all expectations and has limitless potential and who will certainly go on someday to achieve great things.
