POUND RIDGE, N.Y. -- Fox Lane High School's valedictorian and salutatorian for the Class of 2015 were honored by the Pound Ridge Town Board during a pair of recent ceremonies.
The gatherings, which took place during the board's June 11 meeting, included proclamations for Laura Quinn, the valedictorian, and Lauren Prisco, the salutatorian.
Councilman Dan Paschkes, who read aloud the proclamations on the board's behalf, went through the various achievements Quinn and Prisco had during their years at Fox Lane.
In Prisco's case, Paschkes noted that she played on Fox Lane's field hockey and girls' lacrosse teams - this included being leading scorer and captain, respectively - being inducted into the National Honor Society, receiving a scholarship, receiving several academic awards over the years and helping to found the school's Relay for Life Club.
“Well done,” Paschkes said.
This year's Relay for Life event, held at the high school, was mentioned during the talk. Prisco noted that, based on what has been counted so far, more than $38,000 has been raised.
In reading Quinn's proclamation, Paschkes noted that she was inducted into the National Honor Society, was named a National Merit Scholar finalist, is a Harvard Book Award winner and a scholarship recipient and has participated in performing-arts school groups such as the Fox Lane Players and Foxapella.
“Laura, I am in awe of your achievements, and everybody should be,” Paschkes said.
Prisco and Quinn will graduate with their classmates when Fox Lane holds its ceremony on Tuesday, June 23. The ceremony will be held at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah.
