The Pulitzer Prize winners were recently announced. Although no Greenburgh school graduate was on this year's list - the Xposure after school program is preparing students as young as 8 years of age for careers in journalism,, finance, science and more.

The WXGB Fun Finance radio show provides students with an opportunity to develop a range of communication skills including speaking, listening, eye contact, flexibility, being conversational, research, etc.
I have been interviewed by Xposure Greenburgh students on a number of occasions and have provided them with the opportunity to learn how their local government works.
During this latest interview the students asked me a wide range of questions dealing with town issues and challenges the town has faced. The interview is currently being aired on the Greenburgh Cable Public Access Station.
