It was our distinct pleasure to once again make a presentation to a Wyandanch Memorial High School Creative Empowerment Arts Contest Winner. This year’s winner, Pierrelande Saint Cyr, who received a runner-up award of a $500.00 college scholarship is pictured with Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc.’s Founder/CEO, Mrs. Madona Cole-Lacy and Program Director, Mr. James Lacy.
Pierrelande’s Creative Expression of the theme: “Our Hopes, Our Dreams, Our Fears, Our Solutions!” is in the form of a poem entitled “I am Who I am.”

While this event was no exception, one thing that stood out at the ceremony that deserves mentioning is the fact that roughly 99% of scholarship recepients were attired for success in some form. Kudos to Principal Paul Sibblies, Guidance Counselor Tifanny Kee, staff, parents and last but not least, the students themselves who followed guidance, and kept the focus of the event on scholarship and dignity by being appropriately attired!
We want the students to know that we NOTICED and APPRECIATED their efforts. And that it is without reservation that we name the 2017 Wyandanch Seniors Class “The 2017 BEST DRESSED Senior Award Ceremony Class!”
This does not surprise us in the least as the Wyandanch Memorial High School is one whose Principal champions the idea of the social aspect of college and workplace readiness.
