Recent Hen Hud graduate Joe DiBitetto chatted with Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter to discuss some highlights and takeaways from his high school career before he heads off to Villanova University this fall.
Among Joe’s many academic accomplishments are receiving a Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber Scholarship, earning the Seal of Biliteracy in Italian, recognition by the Westchester County Board of Legislators and the Coalition of Italian American Organizations for excellence in Italian language studies, and receiving the President’s Award for Academic Excellence.
Joe was very involved in the high school’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club, noting that the trips he made to FBLA conferences were memorable and influenced him in his choice to study business at Villanova.
“I believe Hen Hud has prepared me for life beyond high school,” he said. “I would tell any incoming freshman to work as hard as you can, because it will surely pay off in the end.”
