Bishop Kearney High School senior Jenna Fiordimondo was selected the winner for the “Police Commissioner for a Day” Essay Contest from more than 2,000 entries from high school students throughout New York City.
The contest, sponsored by the Police Athletic League, asked students to answer the question, “What initiative would you implement to address the issue of drug use among the city’s youth?”
Jenna responded, “I would raise awareness in schools through group meetings and peer groups and assemblies where special guests would visit, talking about the dangers of abuse.”
For her intuitive essay, Jenna received a badge and a plaque from Commissioner James P O’Neill at the swearing-in ceremonies held at Police Headquarters on June 7, and accompanied the Commissioner on his official police duties.
Other Bishop Kearney winners included Emma Schoppmeyer, class of 2017 for winning Commanding Officer of Internal Affairs; Ashleigh McGregor, class of 2017, for Commanding Officer of 63rd Precinct; and Gabriella Guzman, class of 2018, for Commanding Officer of 66th Precinct.
