Farmingdale HS Class Of 2014

A high school diploma—for some it is a stepping stone to their collegiate futures, for others it embodies thirteen years of hard work. 

 

On June 24, 452 Farmingdale High School seniors in the graduating class of 2014 adorned their cap and gown for its commencement ceremony at Hofstra University’s David S. Mack Sports & Exhibition

Complex. Friends, family, alumni and community members were in attendance to watch the newest graduates walk across the stage.

 

At the ceremony, class salutatorian Minhal Ahmed and valedictorians Leah Ragno and Elijah Mas shared a few words with the audience about their experiences in Farmingdale and the journey ahead. 

 

Afterwards, Farmingdale High School Principal Glen Zakian took the podium, to tell the students how proud he is that each and everyone in the Class of 2014 has embraced the meaning of “Daler Pride.” 

 

“I have had the pleasure to watch these students mature and grow into fine young men and woman in four years,” Zakian said. “Not only did they succeed in the classroom and reach this level of achievement, but they have become role models and valuable members in our community.”

 

After receiving their diplomas, students turned their tassels to the right, so as to turn over a new leaf into their newest life journey as young adults, before tossing their caps into the air.  

 

“We are extremely proud of our graduates who worked hard to achieve their goals and earn their high school diplomas,” said Farmingdale School District Superintendent John Lorentz. “Our high-level course offerings and extensive programs have provided the Class of 2014 with the necessary skills and foundation to pursue their dreams, in both, higher education and in the workforce.  We look forward to hearing back from our new alumni in the future, and for them to share their success stories with us.”

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.
