Morgan Kingsley will join the Women’s Swimming & Diving team and study actuarial science at Bentley University.

“The college has a ton of different opportunities to explore,” Kingsley said. “My coach is so supportive of me doing other clubs and exploring other options in addition to swimming.”

Quinn Smith will join the Men’s Swimming and Diving team at Marist College.

“They have pretty much everything I could want,” Smith said. “I got along really well with the coach and had a great overnight visit.”

Brody Coleman will be playing lacrosse while studying economics at Yale University.

“I chose Yale because of the balance of academics and lacrosse,” Coleman said. “They’re competing for a national championship every year and that factored heavily into my decision.”

The student-athletes expressed thankfulness for their family, friends and coaches for all of their support in their athletic careers.

Cazenovia High School’s Project Café and Owahgena Chapter of the National Honor Society hosted an Irish heritage arts and crafts event at the Burton Street Elementary School as an addition to the monthlong celebration of St. Patrick’s Day; proceeds supporting relief efforts in Ukraine.

Student leaders Hannora Race, Sophie Clancy and Emma Steinberg were vital to planning the event, everything from a felt Irish flag craft to pipe cleaner clovers.

“We were talking about what was going on in Ukraine and what we could do to help in government class,” said Steinberg. “This seemed like a great way to help while celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.”

Cazenovia High School History Teacher and Project Café Advisor Kurt Wheeler said the event was also a great service to parents who might have daycare conflicts on the half day of school. He expressed how proud he was of the students’ work.

“They have as much impact on the community as any adult,” said Wheeler. “It’s a great leadership opportunity for the students.”

The event was free to all but donations from the event and the bake sale will go toward the Red Cross international relief efforts in Ukraine.

Project Café, standing for Community Activities for Everyone, is a non-profit organization promoting drug- and alcohol-free activities, community service and scholarship. Cazenovia students have created two different parks in the community through this organization in addition to helping to coordinate events like the Fourth of July parade and the Winter Festival. Service Mindset and Action is one of the many focus points of being a member of National Honor Society. Information on these student clubs is available at
