Marina Durand is excited. It’s the teenager’s senior year at Huntington High School and she wants to make the most of it, even in the midst of a public health crisis.
“I’m looking forward to taking AP Environmental Science with Ms. [Nicole] Cooper and Calculus with Mrs. [Joann] Ferazi,” Ms. Durand said. “I have heard so many amazing things about these classes and teachers and am very intrigued as to what we will learn.”
Ms. Durand has been a mainstay on the Blue Devil girls’ volleyball team. She’s still deciding whether she will play lacrosse or run on the track and field team. Whatever she decides to pursue she will do it with enthusiasm.
“For my senior year, I’m hoping to stay involved in all activities and enjoy the time while it lasts,” Ms. Durand said. “I will definitely be joining more clubs and participating as much as I can.”
The teenager has a laid back personality and she always tries to make the best of any situation she happens to find herself in. She’s a fun person to be around and has lots of friends with her closest being Timmeree Koepele, Sydney Wekstein, Liam Hassett, Torin Bograd and Jack Giamo.
“This past summer was definitely interesting with all of the COVID-19 restrictions, but I did try to make the best at of it,” Ms. Durand said. “I spent a lot of my time in Montauk with my family and thinking about where I want to go to college. It definitely was a fun summer and I was sad when it came to an end.”
The teenager is interested in Ohio State University, Clemson University and the University of Florida. “However I am unsure what I want to major in right now,” Ms. Durand said.
