At Wayne Hills, there are a wide variety of activities to participate in, making it easy for students to get involved. Along with a wide variety of activities, there are also many courses that are open to everyone. Erica Radler, a junior at WHHS, takes advantage of the endless amount of opportunities that she is given.

Radler, who wants to be a computer or software engineer, takes classes such as AP Computer Science Principles and Honors Java, which furthers her knowledge of both computers and software. However, Radler’s favorite class is Java, saying, “Java is definitely my favorite – I think it’s super interesting learning about how to communicate with a computer to build programs.”

Radler also participates in several clubs and activities. She is on the varsity field hockey team in the fall and runs for the track team in the spring, with field hockey being her favorite sport. She is also a member of FBLA and NHS, along with the Secretary of Student Council.

Not only does Radler participate in all of these activities, she also does humanitarian work. Going into her freshman year, she went down to Florida, where she won the SYTA Visionary Award (Student and Youth Travel Organization). Radler has spent every year since planning color runs, donating the money to the nonprofit organization. Their efforts give scholarship money and educational travel opportunities to underprivileged students. Much of the money donated went to helping kids in Passaic at the Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School. She said “I have worked with the elementary schools in Passaic to implement digital workout labs – smaller classrooms that have projectors and interactive games – which allow students to get physical activity in smaller areas, as outdoor and gym space is very limited. I hope to continue working to improve both education and exercise in students in any way that I can, as they deserve every opportunity possible to learn, stay healthy, and grow to hopefully one day help others as well.”

Radler wishes to go to MIT for college, along with interest in Lehigh and Northeastern. She encourages underclassmen to challenge themselves, saying “High school is a great time to explore your options, so find new subjects that you’re good at or enjoy, and to take advantage of all the information and resources at your fingertips.”
