Students Excel In State DECA Competition

More than 130 John F. Kennedy High School business and marketing students recently competed in the New York State DECA competition in Rochester. DECA is an international educational program that prepares students to be leaders and entrepreneurs in the marketing, finance, hospitality and managements fields.

Eighty Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District students (shown at right) qualified for the International DECA Conference, and 67 of those students will attend the event in Atlanta, Georgia to compete against 15,000 students from around the world.

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District congratulates the following five seniors from the competition that were elected to the state’s DECA Honor Society: Derek Ash, Jeremy Frierman, Jeffery Plotkin, Lisa Rosentstein and Reid Zank. In addition, the District recognizes Ms. Kimberly Sieloff for being presented with the New York DECA Media Award.

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.  

Thousands of Long Islanders streamed into Burn Park in Massapequa recently for the Town of Oyster Bay’s annual Salute to America concert featuring Dean Karahalis and the Concert Pop Orchestra with fireworks by Grucci.

The event paid tribute to veterans, past and present, and honored three deserving honorees: Guillermo Torres, Plainview’s Robert Reahl and Barbara Tortorice.

Torres is the winner of the Town’s Veteran Lifetime Achievement Award. A Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient, Torres was wounded while on maneuvers.
