So—this is it, isn’t it?
Well what if I told you that it wasn’t? What if I told you that this is not nearly the end for us? Yes, we’ve all leaped over hurdles and trudged on through our last steps to this final glorious moment, but this is not any of our final glories. So where does this leave us now?
I first want to give my thanks to the Board of Education, Administrators, Faculty, and parents for their support during our four years in high school.
Now to the Class of 2013 …
Good afternoon everyone! Instead of simply narrating a speech, I thought we could do something fun, let’s watch a movie; a verbal movie of our years together. Let’s press
“Play” and begin in September of the year 2000. Do you know where we were? Kindergarten. Those glorious days of naptime and finger-painting … cliché I know, but where did those days go? That was the first time some of us met, but that was only the beginning, and when kindergarten ended, a new experience began in the first grade where new friends were made and new skills were learned.
I can’t help but to stand here and grin
Simply because this is where we begin
I want to express to you
How much we’ve been blessed to
Have had the opportunity
to thrive in this community
It’s inevitable that every rebel
Is given a special home
To prone their flair
Their personal share
Of facing the world
So willing to dare
The John L. Miller-Great Neck North High School presents two prestigious awards at its graduation ceremony, the Alan L. Gleitsman Outstanding Graduate Award and the Genelle Taney Memorial Award. (The school’s other awards were given at the Senior Awards event prior to commencement).
Jayant Sani is the winner of the 2013 Gleitsman Award. The late Alan Gleitsman, a 1947 graduate of then Great Neck High School, established the Alan L. Gleitsman Outstanding Graduate Award in 1988 to be given annually to a North High School graduating senior. Gleitsman winners must place within the top 10 percent of their graduating class, uphold a high level of quality involvement in student activities, be dedicated to the school and the well-being of fellow students, and have a commitment to pursue further education on the college level.
