Northstar Network members asked to document Student Athlete Advisory Committee Conference for second consecutive year

On Saturday, November 11, CNS High School student members of the Northstar Network, Caroline Dunn, Drew Matyasik and Aaron Tarquinio, took on a meaningful mission traveling to the JMA Wireless Dome for the purpose of creating a video to highlight high school athletes. 2023  marked the second consecutive year that Northstar Network was commissioned by Section III to capture the insights and perspectives of Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) members on the vital role of high school athletics in nurturing positive character traits, such as leadership and sportsmanship.

Throughout their visit to the Dome, the Northstar Network team engaged with SAAC members to discuss their experiences and reflections. The aim was to underscore how participation in athletics contributes not only to physical well-being but also to the development of essential life skills and character attributes.

Mr. Vinette, advisor for the Northstar Network, played a crucial role in supporting and guiding the students throughout the initiative. His involvement exemplifies the collaborative spirit within our school community, emphasizing the importance of mentorship and guidance in extracurricular pursuits.

Mr. Farranto's Media Communications students will now be taking the recorded footage from the conference to produce a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for Section III. This PSA will serve as a tool to highlight the key takeaways from the conference, showcasing the impactful narratives and insights shared by SAAC members.

This initiative builds upon the success of the previous year when Johnny Lisi and Aaron Tarquinio represented our school at the conference. The continuity of our involvement in such events underscores our dedication to fostering a well-rounded educational experience for our students.
