More than 70 district students were celebrated by the Board of Education, members of the administration and community members at the BOE meeting on May 9 at Glen Cove High School.

The accomplishments ranged from stellar performances in art, mock trial and spelling to a competition to promote health care careers, at which Glen Cove High School students beat out 700 other Long Island students and took home first prize, winning $5,000. 

“This was Glen Cove High School’s second year competing and they won the biggest prize,” Superintendent Dr. Maria Rianna said of the Northwell Health Spark! Challenge. “They truly represented Glen Cove in the best of ways.”

After presenting dozens of awards, Dr. Rianna noted that while Glen Cove students are fabulous, they need and receive help.

“They don’t do it alone; they have parents, teachers, teachers’ assistants and all the support staff. It is truly a family,” she said.
