    Sayville High School History Club Making a Difference

    by Linda Mittiga, Sayville Schools Public Relations

    The Sayville High School History Club, advised by Social Studies teacher Susan Hart and Michel Pace, continues to be very active with community-service and volunteer programs, informational field trips to both local and national historic sites, and school-awareness activities.Recently, during Human Rights Month, the History Club focused on the topic of human trafficking and attempted to bring an awareness of this important issue to the entire High School community. History Club Secretary Hanna Decker explained: “The Club created a Powerpoint presentation and went into classrooms telling students about the prevalence of human trafficking and what we can do to help stop it.  The Club also decorated the school with posters and black chains emphasizing the need to ‘break the chain.’  Outside the cafeteria, the History Club members set up a table where they collected donations.  These proceeds went towards Long Island Against Human Trafficking, a local organization that focuses on this issue on the island.  All in all, the Club raised $300 and was extremely successful in raising awareness about this horrific issue currently plaguing the world.”
