Fennelly: Friendly rivalry grows among childhood pals

MONTREAL — It's been 20 years, but Donna Callahan can still see and hear them out in front of the house on Groveview Circle in suburban Rochester, N.Y. Her Ryan is on the cul-de-sac with his big brother Mike. So are the Gionta boys: Mike's buddy Brian and his kid brother, Stephen.

The College Board has named two Hillsborough County schools as SpringBoard National Demonstration Schools for the next two school years.

Strawberry Crest High and Martinez Middle schools each will receive a $10,000 credit for professional development services, registration and recognition at College Board events.

They’ll also get a customized school banner and plague and be included in SpringBoard research and reports.

SpringBoard was created by the College Board, the company known for the SAT test and Advanced Placement courses and tests.

The program uses engaging, fun activities to improve critical thinking skills and promises to prepare more students for Advanced Placement and college-level classes.

Hillsborough’s two schools were among 14 named in four states: Florida, Colorado, New Mexico and Washington.

In Florida, the other schools are: Pine Ridge Middle School in Collier County, Mater Academy Charter Middle/High School in Miami-Dade County, and Boynton Beach High and Santaluces Community High schools in Palm Beach County.
