Greenwich Student Spotlight: Michael Kural and Owen Tedford

This has been a banner year for academic achievement by local-area students - and here at Living Greenwich we love to help spread the word of their accomplishments!

Very early in the year, we were honored to bring you the news of Greenwich High School student, Olivia Hallisey, winning the Google Science Fair Grand Prize (and her celebratory appearance on The Colbert Show).

Recently, there have been two more notable academic attainments by ambitious and talented Greenwich High School students that we think are worthy of mention in this new edition of the Living Greenwich Student Spotlight...

Olivia Hallisey Visits the Riverside Math Club for Girls Only

Olivia Hallisey Visits the Riverside Math Club for Girls Only

On Monday night aspiring girl STEM students heard from one of their own. Olivia Hallisey, GHS rising Senior and local celebrity by virtue of winning the Google Global Science Award, and her Science mentor Mr. B (Andrew Bramante) talked to the girls about what it’s like to pursue their STEM passions in the Greenwich High School Science Lab program.

For those unfamiliar with the Riverside Math Club for Girls Only, it started 5 years ago, founded by Brian Peldunas. When his daughter Julia came home from Riverside school and announced that she was the only girl among 15 boys in her 3rd grade advanced math class, Brian knew they could do better. So he started the Math Club For Girls Only on the premise that a little math enrichment now would pay big dividends for the girls in middle school, and eventually in High School and beyond.

Local Soccer Coach Donates Used Equipment to Children in Need

Local Soccer Coach Donates Used Equipment to Children in Need

Jorge Acosta has been teaching soccer in Greenwich for the Mickey Kydes Soccer Program since 1997. When he started here, he noticed that after every season a good amount of gently used uniforms, balls, cleats, and other gear are discarded. Jorge knew that children in his hometown in Colombia, South America would absolutely love to have this equipment.

So Jorge took it upon himself to gather up the equipment at the end of each season and personally bring it to the children back home in Barranquilla, Colombia. He’s made the trip every year since 2003.

For many, Memorial Day weekend is the kick-off to summer, filled with barbecues and beaches...but it's important to take some time out to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday and pay respect to those who fought and died while serving their country to protect the freedoms that Americans enjoy.

On Sunday, May 29th the Byram Veteran's Association held their annual Memorial Day parade. The weather was perfect and the turnout was enthusiastic in their observance of what this weekend is all about.

Ada is Back - The Greenwich Perambulator

Ada is Back - The Greenwich Perambulator

The Greenwich Perambulator regularly roams the neighborhoods of Greenwich, sharing some of his random findings.

The Greenwich Perambulator has fond memories of buying penny candy from Ada at her small shop on Riverside Avenue, just north of the Metro North station. Ada never seemed to age, and she was a surrogate Mom to many kids in her Riverside neighborhood. Those penny candy bins were like magnets to kids on their way home from school.
