Two Inducted into HoA

As the culminating homecoming activity on Oct. 18, two district alumni were inducted into the Hall of Achievement in an evening ceremony.

“The goal of the Hall of Achievement is to introduce positive role models to our school community,” said Superintendent of Schools Charles A. Leunig. “Such models, by their very nature, inspire students to adopt high aspirations.”

This year’s inductees were Toni Newman Clemens (Class of 1981) and Clare A. Hochreiter, M.D. (Class of 1968).

 


 

Alumni Inducted

In an effort to recognize graduates of Copiague High School who have succeeded in their careers and lives, as well as those who have distinguished themselves by virtue of their contributions to community and society, the Board of Education created the Hall of Achievement. Each year, to conclude the District’s homecoming festivities, inductees are celebrated at a special evening ceremony.

This year’s inductees are Dr. Jame’l Hodges (Class of 1992), Mark A. Rosenberg (Class of 1990) and Marina Katherine (Tsakis) Skea (Class of 1973). With the induction of the three newest members, the Hall now boasts 85 members.

“Copiague – a very diverse community with people from around the world; Copiague – a school district where over 4,000 students pass through the hallways each year; Copiague – a place where the school district won national honors for Advanced Placement; Copiague – a town and school district that produced so many graduates that went on to do amazing things throughout the town, the country and the world,” said Board of Education President Michael L. Greb. “Tonight, we have many of those alumni present. I am humbled by your presence.”

The goal of the District’s Hall of Achievement is to introduce positive role models to the school community. By their very nature, inductees to the Hall inspire students to adopt high aspirations.


Alumni Inducted into Hall of Achievement

Every year, for more than 15 years, the Copiague School District hosts an induction ceremony for its Hall of Achievement. The induction, which serves as the culmination of the district’s homecoming celebrations, recognizes graduates of Copiague High School who have succeeded in their lives and careers, or who may have distinguished themselves by virtue of their contributions to community and society. The primary goal of the Hall of Achievement is to build a sense of pride for all Copiague graduates – past, present and future. In celebration of the 16th year of the Hall of Achievement, five alumni were inducted into the Hall on Sept. 29. This year’s inductees were Annemarie Conlon, Ph.D. (Class of 1977), Derrick Davis (Class of 1996), Michael B. Falzarano (Class of 1969), Sharon A. Fattoruso (Class of 1962) and Regina V. Sharpe (Class of 1981). With the induction of these five outstanding individuals, the Hall of Achievement boasts 82 alumni.     
“The goal of the Hall of Achievement is to introduce positive role models to our school community,” stated Superintendent of Schools Charles A. Leunig. “Such models, by their very nature, inspire students to adopt high aspirations.”

As a special treat this year, inductee Derrick Davis performed with the Madrigal Choir by singing “O Sifuni Mungu.” Following the Madrigal performance, the audience was introduced to each inductee by the person who had nominated them for the special honor. Each inductee was then presented with a plaque commemorating their induction and spoke a few words about what the induction and Copiague meant to them.

The evening concluded with the unveiling of the wall that holds the Hall of Achievement plaques, which are prominently displayed in the main hallway of Walter G. O'Connell Copiague High School. For more information on each inductee, please visit the alumni page of the district website, www.copiague.k12.ny.us.
