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.

News

Modern libraries can no longer be thought of as cavernous monuments to dusty old books — and nowhere is that more evident than at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library.

Library director Gretchen Browne recently sat down with the Plainview-Old Bethpage Herald to discuss a few of the more significant changes taking place under her watch; the biggest news, she said, was regarding funding for the library’s recently-completed renovation project.   

A Plainview attorney is being disbarred after pleading guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from clients, according to the Nassau County district attorney’s office.

Matthew Kogan, 40, repaid the full amount to victims as a result of prosecution for stealing client funds to pay off personal and professional expenses. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice recently announced that Kogan will no longer be able to practice law after stealing client funds instead of depositing the funds into his escrow account.
