Farmingdale High School announced their Valedictorian and Salutatorian for the Class of 2022 this month. Seniors Kevin Piraino and Amanda Treulich took top honors. Kevin Piraino achieved the highest cumulative GPA out of 460 students, earning himself the top spot of valedictorian. Amanda Treulich achieved the rank of salutatorian. Both students were also informed that they advanced to the semifinal round in this year’s National Merit Scholarship Program.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment for these two students and puts us in awe of their commitment to learning,” said Farmingdale High School principal, Dr. Samuel Thompson. “Congratulations to both Kevin and Amanda! We are extremely proud of this exceptional academic accomplishment!”

Both Piraino and Truelich are also pursuing a Seal of Civic Readiness. This program launched by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is currently being offered in only nine long island high schools. Civic readiness is the ability to make a positive difference in the public life of our communities through the combination of civic knowledge, skills and actions, mindsets, and experiences.

“Congratulations to Kevin and Amanda on being named Farmingdale High School Class of 2022 valedictorian and salutatorian,” said Superintendent Paul Defendini. “Their years of hard work and dedication have paid off in a major way and the entire Farmingdale family could not be more proud of your success.”
