Montefiore Honors Clinton Students

Thirty-nine DeWitt Clinton High School seniors who successfully completed the Nurses' Assistant Clinical Program were honored in a ceremony last Wednesday at Montefiore Medical Center, where the clinical portion of the one-year program takes place. Montefiore's president, Spencer Foreman, M.D., praised Clinton's continuing "academic renaissance" and told the program's graduates that they were "wonderfully positioned to move ahead for your   own growth and advancement." Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson also addressed the group. "You should really be proud of yourselves today," he said in his remarks.

Thirty-seven out of the 39 graduates have plans to go to college and one to the U.S. Military Academy. The program includes infection control, personal care, nutrition, diet therapy, circulatory and respiratory care. 

Top Bronx High School Seniors Honored

The Bronx County Historical Society held its 43rd annual reception for Bronx high school valedictorians on Sunday, June 7, at the Valentine-Varian House on Bainbridge Avenue in Norwood. Honorees received a package of books about the Bronx after a tour of the Museum of Bronx History. Pictured above are Jasmine Maldonado,   valedictorian of DeWitt Clinton High School, and Miranda Chen, valedictorian of Bronx High School of Science. Coincidentally, both graduates will be attending the University of Pennsylvania in the fall.

"I'm very proud and happy that hard work paid off this way," Maldonado said.
