Mayors Award Winner Announced

Village of East Williston Mayor David Tanner announced last week that this year’s recipient of the annual Mayors Award will be building inspector Robert Campagna.

 

“It was an unexpected surprise and honor when Mayor Tanner told me that I was being given this award,” Campagna said. “The mayor and village board have been very supportive, allowing me the ability to practice in a professional but fair manner.”

 

Campagnas has lived in East Williston for 30 years, holding the Building Inspector title for nearly 20 of them. He earned a BA in architecture in 1977, and has been a licensed architect for 35 years, specializing in residential alterations and additions.

 

According to Campagna, one of the greatest honors of his career was when then-mayor Nancy Zolezzi, and Tanner, who was a trustee at the time, asked Campagna to assist in doing a master plan for East Williston.  

 

“What resulted was the expansion of the Village Hall, dedicated October 2010, increasing needed space for the library and village office, as well as bringing the building into compliance with handicapped accessibility,” Campagna said.

 

A ceremony will be held on Monday, May 26, where Campagna will receive the award on the Village Green.  He will attend with his wife Vivian of 41 years and three children, Michael, Matthew and Elise.

News

The Wheatley School recently hosted an Item Writing Workshop for more than 100 language teachers representing districts across New York State.  The workshop was sponsored by the Foreign Language Association of Chairpersons and Supervisors (FLACS), the professional organization that has assumed responsibility for the creation and administration of the FLACS

Checkpoint A and B Exams (formerly the NYS Second Language Proficiency and Regents Exams).

Last year, the Mineola Fire Department initiated an Adopt-A-Hydrant program to offer residents and businesses an opportunity to enhance their fire protection by providing a simple service to the village, caring for a fire hydrant. The MFD is looking for adopters once again.


Sports

After consecutive seasons of finishing runner-up in the men’s golf Player of the Year for the Skyline Conference, Christian Bleck of St. Joseph’s took home first place in a rather unlikely turn of events. 

 

After a herniated disc caused the Chaminade High School alum to miss every event after the first week of the season until the conference tournament, Bleck returned—without even having the luxury of practicing a full 18 holes—and competed with the best players the conference has to offer. 

Cross-Country Crowned Champs

The Mineola Mustang boys cross-country team won the division 4A championship recently at Bethpage State Park.  This is the first championship for the program since 1974, ending a 40-year championship drought. 

 

Mineola defeated Seaford, who also entered the undefeated in division competition, 38-20.  Overcoming rain and high winds throughout the race, many Mustangs ran personal records for the 5K in route to the victory.
