For Northport-East Northport seventh, tenth and twelfth graders, getting certified in CPR is not only encouraged, but required. The certification course, which has been provided since 2018 in the district, is part of the students’ physical education requirements.  It is provided with the hope that in the event CPR needs to be performed, students will feel prepared for the possibility of saving a life.   

Students in both grades take the CPR certification course regardless of which physical education program they are enrolled in. The course, which consists of students learning CPR compressions and how to use an AED defibrillator, would ensure each student is certified both during and for at least two years after high school. Northport High School Physical Education Teacher Sean Lynch stated that the hope is that students will continue to continue to get recertified even after they graduate and into their adult lives.  

Mr. Lynch also shared that when describing the importance of the course to students, they reference past tragedies in which lives may have been saved had someone known how to perform CPR or use a defibrillator.  “By talking to students honestly and about real-life situations that could occur, I think that has really helped them understand just how important this course is. Most, if not all, have taken it extremely seriously.” 

He added “No matter their profession in the future, we hope students make a point to get recertified so they have the ability to save someone's life.”

Following an additional round of qualifications, all three Northport High School National Merit Semifinalists have gone on to be named finalists in the competition. Seniors Camden Burk, Tara D’Amico and Rudolph Mastrocinque now each qualify for the final round and the opportunity to be named National Merit Scholars. 

As finalists, each student received a Certificate of Merit. Approximately 7,500 of the 15,000 finalists will be chosen between March and June as scholarship winners.  

“Attaining the honor of being named a National Merit Finalist is a reflection of many years of hard work on the part of these students and a title which they will be able to carry proudly throughout their lives,” Principal Daniel Danbusky shared. “Our school community is proud of their accomplishments and a great example in showing what may be possible when students are willing to work hard and challenge themselves to be their very best." 

Established in 1955, the National Merit Scholarship Program is a long-standing academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which serves as an initial screen of nearly 1.5 million entrants each year
