Nearly 200 awards and scholarships were presented to members of Amityville Memorial High School’s senior class on May 31. The Senior Awards Ceremony was an opportunity to recognize the achievements of the soon-to-be graduates.

The seniors were joined by administrators, board of education trustees, teachers, guidance counselors, families and fellow students. Also on hand were representatives of the dozens of organizations that sponsor awards and scholarships. Superintendent Dr. Mary T. Kelly said that the Class of 2018 is receiving approximately $1.5 million in scholarship money, “a very significant contribution to our young men and women.”

Awards recognized accomplishments in academics, the arts, athletics, community service and leadership. The honored seniors were called up one by one, and guidance counselors announced each individual’s awards and scholarships. A video presentation featured the top 25 graduates, who spoke about their college plans and what they would miss most about Amityville.  

“Members of the Class of 2018 have been positive role models whose outstanding achievements are cause for celebration,” Principal Maria Andreotti said. “Their dedication, hard work and commitment to success in all areas the school are truly appreciated by the Amityville school community.”
