If you went to one of those websites that ask people to grade their teachers and searched for Riverhead High School physics teacher Greg Wallace, you’d find comments like: “An awesome guy and wonderful mentor who truly loves his students.”

Riverhead High School held its annual college fair on Tuesday at the high school gym, with a turnout from more colleges than it ever had before at one of its college fairs.
Close to 300 students in Riverhead’s senior class attended the fair, as well as over 125 organizations.
And despite the ‘college fair’ title, the event set up through the school’s guidance department had more than just four-year universities. Guidance director Charles Gassar said community colleges, trade schools and the armed services attended the fair as well.
“Dozens of high school seniors were able to speak one-on-one with each representative and find out a little bit about what they have to offer,” said guidance counselor Anastasia Cobis. “As a guidance counselor, I love to see our students networking and coming up with their own plan for what it is they want to do after graduation.”
