Senior Annalisa Welinder was commended for her many accomplishments at a recent Board of Education meeting. Introduced by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Casciano as a truly exceptional student both in the classroom and in the concert hall, Annalisa stood with pride as Principal Christine Austen spoke glowingly of her many accomplishments throughout her educational career in Port Jefferson schools.

In addition to being named a semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program, Annalisa has challenged herself by taking 13 Advanced Placement courses at the high school and takes an applied linear algebra class through Suffolk County Community College. An avid reader, poet and athlete, she has a talent and passion for music and has attended Julliard’s pre-college division music program since childhood to perfect her exceptional violin skills. She also recently served as concertmaster for Julliard's Pre-College Centennial Gala at Lincoln Center, alongside world-renowned classical musicians.
