The Patchogue-Medford Congress of Teachers hosted its annual Student Citizen Awards Night on April 29, 2001. Elementary, middle school and high school students throughout the district received awards based on leadership, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, and effort. The winners were chosen by their classroom teachers.
Once again the ceremony was sensational. It was a wonderful opportunity to honor a select group of students who have, by their hard work, distinguished themselves among their peers. They shine because of their dedication to being the best that they can be.
As always, the ceremony attracted a great crowd. Students, parents, teachers and administrators were proud to be a part of this important event. Also in attendance were Patchogue-Medford Board of Education members, Dr. Patrick A. Nett, Mr. Anthony Kaiser, Mr. Ronald Raby, Ms. Margaret Felouzis, Mr. Brian Brady and Mr. Joseph LoSchiavo. In addition, County Legislator Brian Foley was not only audience members, but also presented special certificates to award winners.
The audience was wowed by foreign language teacher Maureen Kashkin and PMCT SINGS. This group of teachers and retired teachers of the Patchogue-Medford School district performs annually at this awards night. This year Board Of Education Vice President, Anthony Kaiser, also performed with the group.
The evening would not have been such a well run success without the help of many teacher volunteers from all the buildings. Of course the chairpeople for the event, Jolie Trueman, June Russo and Bridget Kinney must be congratulated for another perfectly run event.
PMCT once again congratulates all award winners and thanks all those who helped make the evening such a huge success.
