Some might consider Alexa Amorison to be a quiet young woman, but the Huntington High School junior can be very assertive when she needs to be and she also has a great sense of humor.
Born in Huntington Hospital, the teenager attended kindergarten at Southdown Primary School. She’s personable, friendly and very well-liked and she usually has a smile on her face.
Ms. Amorison spent last summer enjoying some time off. She went to the beach, socialized with her friends and played lots of lacrosse with her club team. Now that she’s back into the swing of school, she is excelling as always.
The junior’s current academic schedule includes classes in AP English Language and Composition, Virtual Enterprise, Spanish IV Honors, US History, Physics and Pre-Calculus.
Ms. Amorison’s closest friends include Bella Algieri, Sarah Giarraputo, Charlotte Maggio and Leah Hansen. She gets along extremely well with her classmates and teammates.
“Alexa is an outgoing, friendly and supportive friend,” Ms. Giarraputo. “She loves everyone and puts them before herself. She’s great at anything she puts her mind to and I’m so lucky to have her as my best friend.”
Secretary of the Interact Club, Ms. Amorison is a student government administrative assistant. She volunteers at Huntington Hospital and is a member of the high school’s English Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society. The junior plays on the Blue Devil varsity soccer, basketball and lacrosse teams.
“Alexa is my go-to friend whenever I’m stressed,” Ms. Algieri said. “She knows how to calm me down like no other and is always considerate of others. Not only is she hilarious, but she is so hard working. I’m truly blessed that Alexa is one of best friends.”
Ms. Amorison hasn’t begun to focus on potential colleges just yet, but she is interested in Rutgers University. “I want to go into nursing,” she said.
The junior’s all-time favorite faculty member is high school math teacher Michael Graziano, “because he knows how to teach really well, but have fun at the same time,” Ms. Amorison said.
The high school years can be challenging for any teenager and Ms. Amorison is no different, but she always makes the best of a situation and usually comes out smiling.
“It’s had its ups and downs, but overall I love Huntington High School,” Ms. Amorison said. “The teachers are amazing and I’ve made so many more connections with people and created so many opportunities for myself.”
