Six students from Lynbrook South Middle School recently competed in the annual Monologue Competition, sponsored by the Carol Farber Honors Program at Nassau Community College. Middle and high school participants in grades 6-12 were challenged to perform a 1 to 1-and-a-half-minute monologue related to the competition’s theme this year, “Thinking Outside the Box.” 

Eighth grader Naiya Stephens earned third place in the middle school category of the competition for performing a scene from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Other Lynbrook South Middle School students who competed admirably were eighth graders Yasmine Afzali, “Steve Jobs’ Apple Campaign”; Elizabeth Ortiz, “The Breakfast Club”; Dakota Pearson, “Ratatouille”; William Valerio, “The West Wing” and seventh grader Jillian Weston, “Lemonade Mouth.” Leading up to the competition, English department chairperson Roxanne Migliacci helped the students with their public speaking skills while music teacher Annie Pasqua provided her theatre expertise.  

Congratulations to all the Lynbrook participants!
