In mid-October, Pascack Valley High School welcomed local barber, business owner, and product designer Adam Ramos of Virile Barber Shop (virilebarbershop.com) and Heart & Heritage (virilehh.com) as the first speaker in a Parent Faculty Organization-funded interdisciplinary pilot program, "People in Your Neighborhood."

Mr. Ramos discussed his journey with students in Mr. Matt Morone’s and Mrs. Bonnie Slockett’s sophomore English classes, and Ms. Christine Back's Advanced Photography classes. This visit enabled students to hear firsthand of the challenges and successes of life outside of school, glean powerful advice, and recognize the various pathways that life can take.

The “People in Your Neighborhood Program” will help students develop their questioning and active listening skills (English classes) and portrait taking abilities (Advanced Photography classes). Additional guests, from all corners of the local community, are scheduled to visit throughout the year.
