Going, going, gone! The PHS Student Council Auction was a success and helped raise over $500 for the club. Lucky bidders walked away with items such as gift baskets, gift certificates to local restaurants and shops, manicure sets, PHS apparel and more.
PHS girls from the Feminenza Young Women’s Leadership Program recently went to New York City to meet and interview 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee, who is best known for leading a non-violent movement in 2003 that brought together Christian and Muslim women and put an end to the civil war that had been raging in Liberia for 14 years.
Congratulations to Peekskill Girls Varsity Soccer Coach Cami Basso, who recently won the title of “Coach of the Year” from the Westchester/ Rockland/Putnam/Dutchess Coach’s Association. Basso was nominated for the award by a group of her peers which included coaches from the Hendrick Hudson, Ossining, Beacon, Lakeland, and Walter Panas high schools.
