Locust Valley High School’s very own Jaclyn Collins won first-place for Nassau County at the finals of Long Island Idol on Tuesday, August 23rd at the Jones Beach Bandshell. Jaclyn recently came in first place in the Reach for the Stars Teen Talent Search sponsored by Nassau County. At the Long Island Idol competition, Jaclyn competed against 30 other Long Islanders, after 200 initially auditioned. The pressure was really turned up when Jaclyn arrived to the Long Island Idol competition only to learn she was going to be the first performer. However, her rendition of Celine Dion's, Taking Chances, won the judges hearts immediately.

Jaclyn received a Dell Notebook and a $500 scholarship to Five Towns College. 

Congratulations, Jaclyn!!!
