Talia Addeo is a sweet young woman who always tries to put forth her best effort. The Huntington High School sophomore is a great student and she’s active in the club program, several academic honor societies and three Blue Devil sports teams.
The teenager’s current slate of courses includes Advanced Placement World History, English 10 Honors, Chemistry Honors, Spanish Honors, Algebra II Honors and Drawing and Painting.
“The teacher I look forward to working with Mrs. [Kristin] Singer in Drawing and Painting,” Ms. Addeo said. “I’ve always had a passion for art and am really excited to grow as an artist in this class.”
Ms. Addeo runs on the Blue Devil varsity cross country, winter track and spring track teams. She plays violin in the school orchestra and is a member of the English Honor Society, Art Honor Society, Environmental Club and Key Club. The teenager is also on the staff of The Dispatch, the high school’s student newspaper.
“I’ve had many wonderful teachers in my years here at Huntington that have really made an impact on me,” Ms. Addeo said. “I give credit to them all, but my math teachers will always have a special place in my heart.”
The teenager’s advice to incoming Huntington freshmen? “Get involved with all the activities the school has to offer,” Ms. Addeo said. “It’s a really great way to get comfortable in the high school setting and as a way to make new friends. As a freshman, getting involved allowed me to make some of my closest friends. I would also say to try not to get yourself overly stressed out, as everything always works out in the end, even if it may seem like it won’t.”
While she still has a long way to go before she graduates from high school, Ms. Addeo said she has her sights on Cornell University, University of Florida, University of Delaware and Penn State University. “My ultimate goal is to go into the veterinary field,” she said.
Ms. Addeo is a dynamic young woman who has quietly built a great reputation for herself at the high school. She is well-liked by her classmates and teachers and respected by the high school’s teaching corps.
“I’m so proud to be a Blue Devil here at Huntington and I’m really enjoying my time here by participating in fun classes, clubs, sports and community service,” Ms. Addeo said. “I look forward to the remainder of my high school years and what the future has to bring.”
