Valley Stream Central High School sophomore Jerahmeel Mendoza had her work published in the September issue of Teen Ink magazine. This national publication and its website and book series highlight writing, art and photography produced by teens through a competitive submission and selection process. 

Jerahmeel wrote her article, which addresses the endangerment of bees, as a ninth-grader through an English class assignment. She is now enrolled in the AP Capstone program that is being rolled out across the district and focuses on students’ investigation of topics of interest.
