Carey Announces 2013 Valedictorian And Salutatorian

Top two students showcase initiative and hunger to learn

Ranked first in a competitive class, Carey High School’s 2013 Valedictorian Sara Stiklickas is admired by students and faculty alike for her composure, dedication, and professionalism. She is an exceptional member of the Carey community who puts her heart into every activity and club she is involved in.

This young lady has shown her leadership skills as president of Mathletes, editor-in-chief of Poseidon and as the drum major. Stiklickas is also an extremely valuable member of the national, foreign language, science, English, art, and the music Honor Societies.

This multi-talented athlete is also captain of the Varsity Girl’s Golf team where she has earned many honors. In addition, she has volunteered her time at a medical center, tutored younger students, and she earned her Girl Scout’s Gold Award by teaching Italian to elementary school students. 

Alyssa Mayer shows nothing but sincerity and kindness to those around her. Mayer’s personal warmth and excellent character make her well liked by both the faculty and the students at H. Frank Carey High School.

Her positive and humble nature are hallmarks of her character. Ranked number two in a class of 277, Mayer has demonstrated excellent work in all subject areas and works hard on all assignments. She is a brilliant, yet modest student who brings an insatiable passion for learning to each and every class.

In addition to being an excellent student, Mayer has demonstrated outstanding athletic talent on the field. She is a student whose depth of character, sincerity, and concern for others are as strong as her academic talents and versatility.

Leading by example and commitment, Mayer has earned the trust of teammates and coaches. Alyssa’s strong sense of ethics has created the role model she has become at Carey. Her insight, embracing nature, and intellectual ability enable her to truly stand tall among her peers.

News

Two Long Island childhood friends, Scott Reich and Michael Winik, recently left their respective careers as an attorney and investment banker to pursue their dream of starting a business together, the online food market OurHarvest in New Hyde Park. 

 

OurHarvest’s next scheduled pick-up is on Aug. 9 at Notre Dame Parish, 1 Aberdeen Rd., New Hyde Park. OurHarvest also has locations in Huntington, Roslyn, Hicksville, and Port Washington, with additional locations slated to open this year.

15 Below, an alternative rock band composed of Sewanhaka High School students, rocked the William Gill Theatre in New Hyde Park Village Hall on Wednesday, July 23. The band had the crowd tossing up beach balls to energetic beats and swaying their iPhones along to slower tunes. 

 

“They were very good tonight,” said Darren Derick Polanco. “I always come to their shows.”


Sports

 Students at Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park recently received belt promotions after successfully completing a series of extensive exams.

 

“Our goal at Charles Water Karate & Fitness is to facilitate mental growth enabling our students to reach their highest potential as human beings,” says Charles Water, owner and director of the school.

“Our studio teaches students how to defend themselves responsibly while instilling self-confidence, self-discipline and respect for others.”

Runners and walkers from New Hyde Park are invited to join in the fun on one of the most unusual 5K courses on Long Island at the Saturday, Aug. 9 Sands Point Sprint.

 

 The run presents the Long Island running community with an opportunity to traverse a unique combination of paved paths and runner-friendly woodland trails at the Sands Point Preserve. 

 

The August 2013 edition of the Sands Point Sprint attracted 313 finishers, including top New Hyde Park finishers Michael Ringel, who scored first in the 11-14 age group and Dave Frisone, who earned first place honors in the 65-69 age group. Race organizers are looking for both Ringel and Frisone, and a host of other New Hyde Park runners, to be back next week.
