At the December Board of Education meeting, both students and staff were recognized for exemplary achievements.

Elwood-John H. Glenn High School senior Brendan Harrigan was named a Commended Student in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship program this fall, and was applauded for his academic success.

“It takes a lot of dedication and attention to your studies to be ranked among the top three percent of students across the country!” said high school Principal Carisa Burzynski.

Third-grade James H. Boyd Intermediate School teacher Elizabeth Held was honored for being a New York State Teacher of the Year finalist, and for all her efforts in bringing grant monies into the district. Ms. Held’s most recent endeavor helped bring about the James H. Boyd makerspace.
Mr. Wayne Barrett, a custodian at James H. Boyd Intermediate School, was honored for going above and beyond with all of his duties, and the dedication he puts into his work for the school.

In addition, the Elwood-John H. Glenn varsity volleyball team was recognized for their Suffolk County Long Island Champion title, their sportsmanship, and athletic excellence.
