Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School hosted its annual Kiwanis Club breakfast at the school on May 28. Administrators, Board of Education members, representatives of the Kiwanis Club of Copiague and the high school’s Key Club and middle school’s Builders Club joined together to celebrate a year’s worth of activities.

After enjoying breakfast together, guests were treated to a medley of songs performed by the cast of “The Addams Family.” Senior members of the Key Club were chosen for scholarships presented by Kiwanis Club President Christine Madrazo. Although the scholarship amounts will not be announced until the school’s Senior Awards Night in June, the following students were recognized as scholarship winners: Soled Liborius, Kemmora Simmons, Shawn Smaldon and Theresa Soraire.

Key Club President Theresa Soraire and Vice President Adam Guglielmelli spoke about the many volunteer activities in which the club participated in this year and the remarkable contributions the club has made to the community. Madison Lombardo, president of the Middle School Builders Club, the junior version of the Key Club, also shared some of the various community service activities completed this year, including Valentine’s Day at the Tanner Park Senior Center, breast cancer fundraising, food collections, clothing and book drives. Copiague School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon announced Krzysztof Krasnowski as this year’s Outward Bound recipient.
