It is with our deepest sadness that the Copiague Public Schools announces the passing of longtime Board of Education member Everett E. Newman III. Mr. Newman was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, scout and neighbor to all. He dedicated 30 years of his life to serving as a member of our Board of Education and was a strong advocate for public education, Copiague, our students and our community. We will remember Mr. Newman for his kindness and tireless commitment to the Copiague community. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will continue on through all of the lives he impacted during his many years of service.

Our heartfelt condolences and sympathy are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
