Illustrating for Kidsday

Lingfei Zhao, an eighth-grade student at Carle Place Middle School, has accepted a position as a staff artist for Newsday’s Kidsday. She was selected for the honor after Kidsday editor Pat Mullooly visited her English class and saw her artwork in the hallway. As a staff artist, Lingfei will have several assignments for the section each year. If she continues working with Kidsday, she can be offered an internship opportunity once she graduates from high school. Cherie Gisondi’s English class at CPMS is expected to be featured in the July 16 edition of the paper.
