Council of PTAs Raises Community Scholarship Funds

Darcy Maccarone Belyea named 2012 Community Scholarship Honoree

On Sunday, March 11th, the Glen Cove Council of PTAs honored Darcy Maccarone Belyea as the 2012 Community Scholarship Honoree.  Each year, the Glen Cove Schools’ PTA units come together to raise scholarship money for the Glen Cove High School Senior class, while honoring a special citizen who has given so much to the Glen Cove community. Ms. Belyea, Director of Glen Cove’s Parks and Recreation, was given accolades from many Glen Cove organizations and individuals for her commitment and support of our students, in the various recreational opportunities that she helps to provide.. Many of the recreational programs as well as the Glen Cove City Summer Camp program have grown and continue to flourish under her watchful eye.  

The event was again held at the Glen Cove Mansion, which served a delicious brunch in a beautiful setting to over 200 guests.  The Glen Cove High School Jazz Band and a faculty ensemble provided entertainment with performances by Jo Ann Criblez and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Laria. The event raises enough funds to offer four to five deserving graduating seniors with scholarships awarded through the Glen Cove Community Scholarship Board.  

The Council of PTAs would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all those who helped to make our 2012 Scholarship Brunch once again a successful event! If not for the tireless work of the Council and many other PTA members, and most importantly the support from our local merchants and corporate sponsors, we would not have been able to create the many fabulous raffle baskets and exciting Grand prizes.  Thank you to all who supported our fundraiser by buying raffle tickets, donating items or donating your time.
