School Store Earns Gold Level Certification

John F. Kennedy High School’s student-run school store, The Hawk’s Nest, was recently re-certified by DECA — a non-profit organization that prepares students for careers in marketing, management, finance and hospitality — as a Gold Level Certification recipient. DECA awards school-based enterprise certifications at three levels: gold, silver or bronze. The Hawk’s Nest was among 160 school-based enterprises in the United States to earn a gold marking, and will be recognized for their achievement at DECA’s International Career Development Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District students Jared Rochlen, Jake Rockower and Josh Schwartz worked on achieving the Gold Level Certification and were assisted by their club advisors Mrs. Lindsay Delucca, Ms. Jennifer Santorello and Mr. Mike Amubry.

Plainview resident Gail Wurtzel will be leading her team, Memories of Miriam, in the Walk to Defeat ALS at Eisenhower Park later this month.

 

Wurtzel’s Mother, Miriam Hanania, also a Plainview resident, succumbed to the disease two years ago after a long struggle. The disease forced her to go from an active, vibrant person to being wheelchair-bound and dependent on others for her care. 

 

ALS or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

While everyone is subject to the trials and tribulations that life offers on a day-to-day basis, some people can use just a little bit of extra help. Luckily, there’s help with a proven track record out there for those who need it. 

 

Joe Russo of Old Bethpage heads up the Recovery International meetings held weekly at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library. These meetings extol the virtues of the self-help techniques developed by the late Dr. Abraham Low, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry as the University of Illinois Medical School.
