Keleigh Power of Floral Park Memorial High School is among the recipients of the 2013-14 Sewanhaka Federation of Teachers (SFT) Etta Schneiderman Scholarship Fund Award. The award is given in memory of Etta Schneiderman, a veteran math teacher from the Floral Park Memorial faculty who was not only an outstanding teacher, but also a profile in leadership through her tireless efforts with the SFT.
Schneiderman was a dedicated union member for many years and served in multiple executive board positions; in 2002 she was elected president and held this position right up until her untimely passing in 2007. Schneiderman was a true advocate for the best interests of the students via the needs of the professional staff and she is fondly remembered as a dynamic teacher, mentor, and friend.

It was announced at the August Stewart Manor Board of Trustees meeting that the Elmont Memorial Library recently reneged on a deal to place a library drop-box in Stewart Manor Village Hall. The box would have allowed the Village’s elderly residents a more convenient option for returning books. According to the Board, the deal was all but done before the library backed out at the last minute.
“They offered us the world and we got crumbs. Rocks, really,” said Stewart Manor Mayor Gerard Tangredi.
