When Dr. Jack Bierwirth first arrived as Herricks School Superintendent the school board commissioned him to do an extensive evaluation of the Gemini Program at the Herricks School since it had never been done before.
Last week the semi-finalist winners of the Intel (formerly Westinghouse) scholarship applicants were named. New Hyde Park was well-represented with the announcement that Katherine Marie Rhindress, of New Hyde Park Memorial High School and Jonathan Cook and Yu (Mimi) Yan, of Herricks were included on the list. All live in New Hyde Park. It goes without saying that each school was very proud of its students for being named to the prestigious position of semi-finalist.
