Eric Bernstein was awarded the “Quintessential Student” Board Award this year.

For this weeks Student Profile, I sat down with Eric to ask him about moving to Long Island and being a student-athlete.

Dustin: When did you start playing baseball?

Eric: When I was about three years old.

D: What position do you play?

E: I play second base or shortstop, depending on the team I’m on.

D: Do you intend to play in college?

E: I would love to play at North Carolina State.

D: What inspired you to pursue baseball?

E: Well my father played in college and he always encouraged me to continue.

D: What are the challenges you face when attending village and playing a sport at north at the same time?

E: Well, one, I do not have a locker to store stuff, and also I dont get news about my team as fast but its worth it, because I love my sport.

D: Did you grow up in Pennsylvania?

E: I did! I grew up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

D: What was it like moving from Pennsylvania to Long Island?

E: Leaving my old friends was pretty hard, but I made new friends pretty quickly.

D: Why did you move to Long Island?

E: Since my aunt and uncle live here, I heard about Village School and I thought it was a great opportunity for me.

D: What are your thoughts on Great Neck?

E: It’s a lot different from Harrisburg, people are more friendly.

D: How does Village School compare to your old school?

E: Village is really different from all the other schools I’ve been to. We do a lot of work and we sit in classes but still, it doesn’t feel like school- it’s actually

fun and interesting.
