Trustees Honored for School Board Recognition Week

School Board Recognition Week is celebrated during the last week of October across New York State, and Amityville Union Free School District Board of Education trustees were recognized at their monthly meeting on Oct. 13.

Superintendent Dr. Mary T. Kelly read a proclamation from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, honoring the men and women across the state who volunteer as school board members. Dr. Kelly recognized the seven members of Amityville’s board, presenting them with certificates of appreciation from herself on behalf of the district’s staff and students, and from Michael Flynn, the chief operating officer of Western Suffolk BOCES.

The members of the board include President Terry Fulton, First Vice President Jeannette Santos, Vice President Carolyn Dodd, and Trustees Susan Benard-Handler, Lisa Johnson, Juan Leon and Laura Pawlewicz.

To further recognize the board, there was a performance by a small group of students from the high school marching band, as well as a student art display.
