Division Avenue High School in Levittown held its first Night of Honor in which 100 students were inducted into the art, business, math and world language honor societies.
In her opening remarks, Assistant Principal Linda Dolecek welcomed students and their parents during this special celebration that recognizes the hard work and dedication, as well as the unending determination, displayed by each of the inductees in their respective disciplines.
“At this Night of Honor, it is our honor to honor you,” Principal Joan Lorelli said. Hempstead Town Councilman Gary Hudes presented the inductees with a citation for their accomplishments. He cautioned the students that there would be speed bumps in life, but that they can rely on their parents for help.
The advisers and presidents of each of the societies then called the names of the inductees, who then repeated a pledge, signifying their membership. In addition, Art Honor Society adviser Tim Ryan announced Olivia Kavanaugh as the recipient of the first Art Show Poster Presentation Award.
Alfred Esposito and Lyndsey Petrofsky also recited poetry in their chosen foreign languages.
Upon completion of the ceremony, the students, parents and staff were invited to attend a reception displaying student artwork.
