In a previous edition of this newspaper, students at Great Neck North and South High Schools were recognized for the traditional top awards—valedictorian, salutatorian, Barstow and Scott Moss. Recognition is also given to students who received new awards.
There were two, first-time awards presented this year, both at South High School—the Harriet Miller Girls’ Empowerment Scholarship and the Jeff Sanders Memorial Award for Social Justice.
Allison Kornrich is South High School’s 2012–13 recipient of the Dartmouth College Book Award. The award, sponsored by Dartmouth College and the Dartmouth Club of Long Island, is “designed to encourage intellectual excellence and to recognize the achievement of a third-year secondary school student.” The recipient should “be a junior in approximately the top five percent of his or her class, who has demonstrated intellectual leadership and has made a positive contribution to the extracurricular life of the school.”
The award is the book, Theodor SUESS Geisel, by Donald E. Pease, a Dartmouth professor. The book focuses on one of Dartmouth’s famous graduates—Dr. Suess.
An overview of the Great Neck Public Schools Class of 2013 reveals 558 graduates from our three high schools: 227 from North, 312 from South, and 19 from the Village School. Close to 97 percent of the graduates will pursue higher education in either two- or four-year colleges. The remainder historically seeks employment, vocational training, or enlistment in the Armed Services. Graduation ceremonies for North and South High Schools were on Thursday, June 20, at Tilles Center, LIU Post, with North’s ceremony in the morning and South’s in the afternoon. The Village School graduation was held on Wednesday afternoon, June 19, at the school.
