Congratulations to Peekskill High School senior Brittney Pauta , who recently won third place at the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium hosted by John Jay High School in Cross River, NY. Pautas’ project focused on Cellular and Molecular Biology and was titled: Evaluation of Oxidative DNA Damage Caused by Clofibric Acid Using Chicken Egg Genotoxicity Assay (CEGA). Ms. Pautas is the first Peekskill High School student to ever place in this competition. We are extremely proud of her hard work and the dedication she has shown to her research.

The students, who had been learning about Peekskill City Government and its various agencies, asked about topics including the personnel budget, body cameras, citizen arrests, police questioning, and the qualifications needed to be a police officer. Chief Johansen, a graduate of Peekskill High School, affirmed that the best part of his job is helping people and his goal as Chief is to have his department "help as many people as we possibly can."
