Sachem School District officials are seeking to improve its notable alumni list by imploring past graduates to share their thoughts and experiences in a new web-based project.
Communications Director and Sachem historian Chris Vaccaro is asking Sachem alumni to email a statement that discusses "Why Sachem Matters to Me," and what type of impact their Sachem experience had on their life and future endeavors since walking at graduation.
Over the past year the Sachem Central School District has been working to compile profiles of notable alumni. "Why Sachem Matters To Me," will be an online document housed on the recently launched Sachem Report. The project will be open-ended, and the district hopes to update it on a weekly, if not daily basis.
“We are extremely proud of our Sachem School District for so many reasons,” Superintendent James Nolan stated in a release. “Our students, both past and present, are such special individuals who always find a way to use their time and talents to make the world a better place. We want to celebrate the impact that Sachem has had on thousands of lives by sharing the stories and memories of our alumni.”
If you'd like to get involved in this historic project, contact Vaccaro with your name, graduation year, career information and examples of how Sachem had an impact in your life. Vaccaro can be reached at CVaccaro@Sachem.edu.
“I’m so proud to call myself a Sachem alum and feel it’s a distinct honor to be a member of such a powerful and prestigious group,” said Vaccaro. “Every day I speak to new alumni who have wonderful things to say about their experiences. It’s my hope to share these stories with the masses and continue to let everyone know why Sachem is one of the finest academic institutions in the world.”
Although the list will be updated to SachemReport.com, news of the updates will be reported on Sachem’s vast media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, The SCENE newsletter and “The Sachem News Hour” radio program on WSHR.
