The Italian and Spanish Honor Societies at Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School recently hosted a visit from Dr. Joseph Bacotti, a local eye surgeon affiliated with Lion’s Club International. Dr. Bacotti told the students all about his volunteer work abroad with those in need of eye care, and how his ability to speak three languages empowered him to better serve and understand the cultures in which he was immersed.
The Italian and Spanish Honor Societies collaborated to run a drive to collect eyeglasses for the needy, and were successful in collecting two large boxes full of used eyeglasses. The glasses were donated to Dr. Bacotti to be used towards his volunteer efforts.
