During the school’s annual Senior Awards Ceremony, more than 75 graduating seniors at Amityville Memorial High School received an excess of 200 scholarships and awards on June 2.

The ceremony featured opening remarks from Principal Dr. Clinton Grant, followed by Superintendent Dr. Mary Kelly and a rousing rendition of the national anthem from senior Amanda Boegle. Produced by Steve Carbo, the audience enjoyed a video montage of the seniors’ high school year.  

The awards and scholarships were a combination of in-district recognitions for academic, athletic or artistic excellence, and local community organizations wishing to bestow endowments for a range of accomplishments including community service. Organizations sponsoring scholarships included the American Legion Post 1015, the U.S. Army, the Kiwanis Club of Amityville, the Amityville Women’s Club, Amityville Chamber of Commerce, Bay Village Civic Association and the Amityville Parent-Teacher Council, among others.

In an auditorium filled with students, family and friends, administrators, faculty and members of the board of education were on hand to congratulate the students for their accomplishments. With recessional music performed by Director of Fine Arts Dr. Fran Fernandez, Dr. Grant concluded the event with closing comments and attendees were invited to the courtyard for light refreshments.
