New High School Announcers Take the Mic

East Islip High School seniors Jake Hoina and Alexandra Konnerth took the mic on the morning of Sept. 5 to start the year as the school’s new announcers.

Tryouts for the announcer positions were held this past June. School staff listened to applicants and rated them on pronunciation, clarity and overall presentation, and Hoina and Konnerth were recently selected.

The enthusiastic pair arrived at the front desk on the opening day of school and were instructed on proper morning announcement procedures before welcoming their fellow students to the 2012-13 school year. After reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, Hoina and Konnerth took turns reading the day’s announcements.
