Amityville Memorial High School has announced its top 10 graduates for the Class of 2018. Trevony Palmer has been named the valedictorian for achieving the highest grade point average among seniors, and Jerinna Solanges is the salutatorian. 

Ranking third through 10th in the class are Isaiah Williams, Eddie Marrero, Gemma Rojas, Shival Sohan, Brandon Gonzalez, Mario Iorio, Ana Candia-Flores and Uhlensky Pierre-Louis.

“I admire these students for their dedication and perseverance,” Principal Maria Andreotti said. “They’ve certainly distinguished themselves among the graduating class. They worked extremely hard and were committed to their studies.”

Trevony will attend the University of Chicago on a full scholarship to study economics or mathematics. He has taken eight Advanced Placement courses in multiple subject areas. Additionally, he is president of the National Honor Society, treasurer of student government, and played junior varsity football in 10th grade.

Jerinna plans to study psychology and is currently deciding among several prestigious universities. In addition to taking numerous Advanced Placement courses, she is a member of the National Honor Society and president of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. She is first chair clarinet in the school band, and conducted Amityville’s marching band at the Newsday Marching Band Festival. With an interest in writing and helping others, she has written several books about teenagers overcoming adversity.

Trevony volunteers in the transport department at Stony Brook University Hospital and Jerinna interns at Cold Spring Harbor National Laboratories studying the decision-making process of rats. Both tutor other students at the Amityville Public Library and have taken courses at Farmingdale State College through the Smart Scholars program.
