Adam Rios @ our Townsend Harris High School site was one of only 12 NYC Samuel Stern Award winners. This award acknowledges a students perseverance and commitment. Many of you already know of his talents. I was mesmerized to see him perform ‘Landslide’ on the guitar. Adam reminded us that his success is shared by many of you, as he did not ‘get there alone’ . He gave a loud shout out to his current teachers Mr. Matt, Ms. Kathy, Mr. Kenny (his manager), and Ms. Jill. Adam also shared his love of music actually began at PEC, as he was supported to play music by Mr. Jon, his OT and Ms. Karen, his music teacher.
