A Huntington High School senior is being recognized as a scholar, volunteer, athlete, and all around leader.
And it’s no wonder. Among the many accolades, Beth Coneys was named the school’s AP Scholar with Distinction, having taken 10 AP courses while in high schools, according to the school’s website.
In addition, she has participated in Grandfriends, Natural Helpers, the National Honor Society and the Spanish, English, Math and Science honor societies. In her high school career, she has won the St. Michael’s College Book Award for Academic Achievement and Social Conscience, and served as treasurer of the Key Club.
And during the past three years, she has served as a Relay for Life team captain, a role she will continue as a senior.
Making her mark both in music and sports, Coneys played in the school orchestra, participating in the NYSSMA festival in a quartet with her friends where they received a score of “outstanding.” She served as captain of the Blue Devils varsity tennis team, and a captain of both the Blue Devil junior varsity softball team.
Her advice for those in high school? Coney, who plans to attend Northeastern University’s Honors College in the fall, said, “Join clubs and teams and get involved with things you're interested in and make friends in all different places.”
