At the beginning of the last Herricks School Board meeting the board was honored because it was School Board Recognition Week. Each board member was presented with a candle in a cupcake and then Superintendent Dr. Jack Bierwirth gave each board member a wacky item crafted by the students rather than a formal gift and because it was so different that it was fun.
Four Herricks High School students were killed on a lunch break on Monday afternoon, Oct. 29, on Searingtown Road, while driving in a 2000 Acura. Two other students were injured traveling on the same route in a 2001 Toyota. Killed were Jeffery Kim, 17; his sister Trudy Kim, 16, both of Roslyn; John Tran 16, of Roslyn and Brian An 16, of Williston Park. All students were headed for Wendy's Restaurant on Hillside Avenue in Williston Park.
