Helping Others

Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club board member Nicholas Miller Berens, PhD, and founding director of Fit Learning, is committed to helping every student who walks through his doors – regardless of age, disability or challenges.  Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club members Brianna Cruz, Junior Youth of the Month for February and Aliyah Stone, Senior Youth of the Month for February, share Dr. Berens’ passion.  Both Brianna and Aliyah wish to follow in Dr. Berens’ footsteps by pursuing noble careers of helping others. 

Dr. Berens has a doctoral degree in psychology and has been developing the Fit Learning Method, a combination of applied behavior analysis, precision teaching, direct instruction, curriculum-based measurement, and relational frame theory, for more than 10 years.  He is an adjunct professor at the department of special education at LIU, CW Post Campus and has written several publications on developmental disabilities and behavioral analyses.  Dr. Berens has received many awards and distinctions and believes in living a full and connected life, one that helps to make the world a better place for future generations.

Eight year-old Brianna Cruz hopes to make the world a better place too by helping the sick and less fortunate and intends on becoming a nurse when she grows up.  Brianna, a third-grader at Connolly Elementary School, plays the violin, enjoys ballet, fine arts and Earth Science but can also be found dribbling down the basketball court.  “At the club I am able to learn ballet and paint all kinds of projects! I also enjoy doing scientific experiments with my friends in Earth Club,” declared Brianna.

 

Eleven year-old Aliyah Stone endeavors to solve problems and facilitates others to solve problems as well.  Aliyah’s determination to understand a situation and find the path to a resolution is a great asset as she pursues her ambitions of becoming a counselor.  Aliyah is a sixth grade at Finley Middle School and is very sporty, playing basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, pool and air hockey but she can also be found in the Computer Lab.  Of her experience at the club, Aliyah stated, “The club is a great place to be! It allows me to have fun with my friends but I’m glad the staff is there to help me with my homework.”

 

“As a new board member, I am excited about sharing my experience of working with children and giving them the confidence they need to become better students.  I am committed to giving kids like Aliyah and Brianna the tools to accomplish everything they want in life.  I am very grateful to be in a position of sharing my expertise and empowering the children of Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club.”

News

Richie Cannata may be best known for his song credits but his name will become a part of history this week. Cannata, a 28-year resident and business owner of Glen Cove, will be inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on Thursday, Oct. 23 at The Paramount in Huntington.

 

As a member of the Billy Joel Band, the saxophone player was propelled to fame in 1975 when he joined the band and played on songs including “New York State of Mind” and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.”

If Heather Lehrman is not yet a familiar face to local pet owners, her name is likely to soon become a household name to dog lovers and families with young children, as her children’s book, Bullied at the Dog Park, was released this week. The book is based on a real-life incident with her own dog, Herbie, and fans will have a chance to meet her and Herbie at a book signing at Petco in Glen Cove on Saturday, Oct. 25.

 

“I wanted to help get the message out in my own way about the effects of bullying,” says Lehrman, a resident of Great Neck. “This book teaches children valuable lessons about treating all dogs (and people) with respect, and the importance of simple kindness.”


Sports

On Tuesday, Oct. 7, the Glen Cove Finley Middle School opened their football season with a home game against Thompson Middle School. The game opened with the Glen Cove offense going on a nice drive, which saw quarterback Mike Vaughan score on a 30-yard touchdown run. 

Six North Shore High School athletes competed in the 2014 JCC Maccabi Games and led the New York Delegation to victory, winning gold. The students included Jacob Abramowitz, Brett Bennett, Drew Jacklin, Ben Lerner, Josh Mandell, and Ben Saltzman. The Maccabi Games is a week-long Olympic tournament for Jewish teenage athletes, ages 14-16 years old. It is held in numerous venues across the United States. 

 

Bennett proudly said, “Competing in the Maccabi Games was a unique and thrilling experience for me. It not only was a highly competitive basketball tournament, but it also emphasized the importance of building strong values such as good sportsmanship, leadership, team unity, compassion and respect.

This, for me, was an experience of a lifetime!”
