Huntington Young Republicans Honor May Students of the Month

The Huntington Young Republicans launched their Student of the Month Program in February 2017 to help engage local high school students in the process of politics and government. In May, the organization recognized two students: John Charles Unser and Katy Dara.

John Charles Unser is a senior at Northport High School, where he is an International Baccalaureate
Candidate. In the fall, John will be heading to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia to study both finance and computer science. At Northport High School, John is the President of both the Debate Team and the Model UN Club, the Vice President of the Academy of Finance, and is the Marching Band Ranking Leader. John stated, “It was an honor to be recognized as the Huntington Young Republicans Student of the Month. My involvement in the organization has made me a more civically engaged student, and I am lucky to have become familiar with Sam and his important cause for political involvement.”

Katy Dara is a senior at Huntington High School where she is enrolled in AP classes. Katy will be heading to SUNY Albany in New York where she plans to study communications and journalism. She is involved in her high school as Section Leader in the marching band, is in the English Honor Society, and editor of the literary magazine, amongst other extra circulars. Katy states, “I am truly grateful to have been honored this month. As my high school career comes to an end, it is truly a wonderful way to reflect on my hard work and accomplishments so far. I hope to continue to strive for success in college and beyond.”
The Huntington Young Republicans are a dynamic group of young professionals between the ages of 18-35 who engage their community through social, networking, educational, and charitable opportunities.
