The Glen Cove Girls Varsity Lady Knights basketball team won the summer league on Wednesday, Aug. 13.
Adriana Rubertone took the podium at the 2014 North Shore High School Commencement Ceremony while her peers, teachers, family and friends watched with joy and admiration.
“Remember the people at North Shore High School and the great teachers that have inspired you and made you who you are right now,” she told her peers. “We were blank slates coming into this school in ninth grade. Now, thanks to the support of the school, we’ve developed identities as a foundation for who we can become in the future.” She concluded by saying, “No matter, what our future holds, there will be opportunities for you to make a difference and ‘be the change you want to see in the world.’ Congratulations North Shore Class of 2014; let’s go forward with confidence and make our community proud.”
Members of SAFE’s PRIDE Project Coalition met recently at a sustainability planning meeting to review their individual committee’s accomplishments in the past year, as well as forecast a plan of action for the upcoming year.
SAFE Board Chair and Strategic Planner Georgie Connett stated that the coalition is in its last year of federal funding through a Drug Free Communities Support Program grant. She thanked the coalition for all of their hard work and accomplishments.
SAFE also receives NYS OASAS funding. OASAS has partnered with the NYS National Guard Counterdrug Task Force to improve the health and well-being of New York communities by addressing alcohol and substance abuse through coalition development.
Late last spring, 14 Long Island students from Friends Academy and Portledge School journeyed to Normandy and joined with students from Germany and France to perform a peace play, marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day. This small troupe of high school students are bent on slowly healing emotional WWII rifts between the three nations of France, Germany and America — and, perhaps, charting a course for future peace and reconciliation throughout the world.
The play, in English, French and German, was performed throughout the region: on Utah Beach and in a museum there, in a theater in Cherbourg, along a waterway in one village and in the town square of Sainte-Mère-Église (the first town liberated by the Allies during WWII and a sister city to Locust Valley). The piece was written by French director Laurence Bohec and ratified by the French government as part of its official 70th D-Day anniversary activities.
As loving families and dedicated teachers and administrators came together to celebrate with pride and gratitude the outstanding accomplishments of Glen Cove High School’s Class of 2014, the graduating seniors made their way out onto J.C. Maiden Field for the last time in their educational careers to accept their high school diplomas.
As the high school band, led by Nick Carbuto, struck up the familiar strains of “Pomp and Circumstance,” the graduates proudly marched onto the field. The GCHS Concert Choir, led by Ed Norris, performed a marvelous rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner,” with senior Michael Banks conducting the GCHS “Alma Mater,” which followed. Graduating senior Alessandra Cappiello led the Pledge of Allegiance.
