Administrators and Board members recognized Glen Cove High School’s top 10 students of the Class of 2018 during the Board of Education meeting on Dec. 13.

Glen Cove High School Principal Antonio Santana kicked off the honors, describing the students as “remarkable.”

“One of the things I want to emphasize is that, above and beyond their achievements academically in terms of their GPAs, all of these students are really involved in the Glen Cove community. It really adds to that spirit that is the Class of 2018,” Santana said. “I’m extremely proud of all their accomplishments.” 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maria Rianna congratulated the students.

“You are an outstanding group of individuals, and to know that our future is in your hands is just a big relief for me,” she said. “I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you, but I know that it will be something heartfelt and wonderful, specific to your own needs. You are amazing.”  

Congratulations to the following students, who are ranked in order: valedictorian John Dong, salutatorian Brandon Kolanovic, honorarian Isabel Blas, Jolee Murphy, Talia Sakhaee, Nicole Franklin, Ryan Greenfield and Amanda Ieraci (tied for seventh), Joshua Filippone and Grace Tenke.
