To provide male students in the Riverhead Central School District with positive role models, Superintendent Dr. Aurelia Henriquez is hosting a Superintendent’s Circle, “Young Men on the Rise,” on Thursday, April 18, at 12:30 p.m., at Riverhead High School.  

During the event, male students from Riverhead High School, Riverhead Middle School and Pulaski Street Elementary School are invited to hear from a number of prominent male community members, including Suffolk County Sheriff Dr. Errol Toulon, President of the Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Luis Vazquez, President and CEO of the Transformative Educational Development Services Marcial Gallimore, Riverhead High School social worker Antonio Diaz and Riverhead Middle School teacher Darren Dunn. Students will be encouraged to ask questions and speak their minds.

“We aim to create a safe space for our young men to be heard, respected and included,” said Dr. Henriquez. “It is so important for us to provide students with opportunities to meet with positive male role models, as they can have a profound effect on a student’s life.”
