National Junior Honor Society Members Honored

Present and past members of the Finley Middle School National Junior Honor Society were recently commended by Superintendent of Schools Maria Rianna and the Glen Cove Board of Education for their participation in the Nicholas Pedone Car Wash. The car wash was held in memory of Nicholas, who lost his battle with Neuroblastoma (a rare childhood cancer) last spring, a few months shy of his eighth birthday. Proceeds from the event will benefit Winthrop-University Hospital’s Cancer Center for Kids, where Nicholas received treatment.

Those Finley NJHS members, some of who are now freshmen at Glen Cove High School, are: Samantha Barry, Anna Bates, Grace Brady, Giuseppe D'Ambrosio, Joshua Filippone, Nicole Franklin, Tristyn Hudson, Amanda Ieraci, Monika Jagustyn, Evangelia Markoulis, Charles McQuair, Sydney Morris, Jolee Murphy, Lindsey Payton, Dominique Pawul, Chloe Perez, Delilah Perez, Brianna Pfaff, Amara Phillip, Talia Sakhaee, Rebecca Tan, Ryan Telese, Grace Tenke, and Alyssa Wozlonis.
