Class of 2022 Valedictorian & Salutatorian

Class of 2022 Valedictorian & Salutatorian
Valedictorian Reka Weinacht and Salutatorian Ryan Carnaxide

Comsewogue High School is proud to announce Reka Weinacht as our Class of 2022 Valedictorian and Ryan Carnaxide as our Class of 2022 Salutatorian.

Intellectually curious, unequivocally hard-working, distinctly kind, and infinitely talented are words that instantly come to mind when interacting with Reka.

Reka has an affinity for creating and developing new ideas that will lead her to certain success in her collegiate studies as a civil engineer.  Boasting a 104.62 GPA, Reka is a humble scholastic explorer whose talents and genius span many facets of academia and art.  Reka has a passion for science and mathematics that is rarely encountered in life.  She has consistently displayed her ability to critically analyze, problem solve, and comprehend many complex mathematical and scientific conundrums.  Reka has taken and mastered the most rigorous courses at our high school and does so with a heart of gold as her resume of activities clearly reflects.  She demonstrates her leadership, teamwork, loyalty, and communication skills throughout all of her activities.  Uniquely, Reka volunteers at a local horseback riding ranch, where she works with disabled individuals in taking care of and riding horses. From rock climbing, slacklining, and tennis to countless honor societies, Stony Brook's Wise Program, and architecture, Reka is a young lady who appreciates a new challenge whether academically or physically.

With a tremendous sense of integrity and honor, Reka vastly contributes to our community.  Her friends appreciate her sense of humor, dependability, and tutoring skills, while her teachers look upon her vast intellect and tenacity with admiration and astonishment. Reka is constantly attempting to learn all she can about the world we live in and how to make it better and we could not feel more honored to call her a Warrior.

When it comes to honorable Warriors, there is no doubt that our Salutatorian of the Class of 2022, Ryan Carnaxide, fits the role. He is an impressive young man who exemplifies dedication, intelligence, and responsibility. Ryan has distinguished himself in many areas of his life, both in and outside of the classroom.

From the soccer field to National Honor Society and community service to being a founding member of our Chess Club, Ryan wears his heart on his sleeve supporting the Comsewogue community. Notably, Ryan has a unique and genuine intellectual curiosity that serves his unquenchable thirst for learning.  His drive and commitment for excellence has allowed him to take on countless accelerated, honors, and Advanced Placement courses in his pursuit of achieving his personal best. He has had a phenomenal scholastic career at Comsewogue High School, climbing to the tippy top of his class.  Without question, Ryan will continue to find academic and personal success in the areas of biological sciences and bio-engineering. 

We will greatly miss our Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and the entire Class of 2022, but we are so excited to hear of their future success and happiness.
