Farmingdale's 2013 Salutatorian

Sara Golshahr has been named Salutatorian of the Farmingdale High School Class of 2013. Sara earned a cumulative 103.619 Grade Point Average (GPA), the second highest of all her classmates.

“Throughout her high school career, Sara was always driven by her genuine desire to learn,” said Farmingdale High School Principal Glen Zakian. “Her accomplishments far surpass grades as she has embraced the expansive world of academic achievement.”

Golshahr completed a rigorous college preparatory program as she enrolled in several Advanced Placement and College Level courses that fully prepared her for higher education. By graduating with a cumulative GPA over 103, Sara qualified as an Advanced Placement Scholar in Physics, Biology, Calculus BC, Language and Composition, Literature, and United States History.

Golshahr’s extracurricular involvement within the Farmingdale High School community includes roles as president of the French Honors Society, vice president of Student Government and vice president of the DECA Business Club.

Golshahr plans to major in Business and participate in a Pre-Medical Advisory program when she begins college at Drexel University in the fall.

Farmingdale village officials will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to reexamine school speed zones throughout the village, in order to establish a consistent school speed zone limit. 

Holidays Increase Daily Congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

At a special “wrap up “ meeting for the 2014 Marcum Workplace Challenge, Greater Long Island Running Club Vice President and Event Director Mindy Davidson of Farmingdale, presented a special plaque to Winsome Foulkes, team captain of the Farmingdale-based Telephonics Corporation.  Winsome is retiring from Telephonics after a long and successful career and has led the Telephonics Corporation in the Marcum Workplace Challenge since its inception.  

There is simply no better way for runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday Season than by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 20, the Run will be celebrating its 27th anniversary edition at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage. The run will start at 9:30 a.m. on Broadway in Bethpage.
