To date, the RBBS has donated almost $500,000 to the district including $25,000 in student scholarships. Its initiatives have included the development of the high school field turf and entrance complex, the establishment of a Wall of Fame and the sponsorship of many special events and clinics. The latest project is the rebuilding of the field house/locker room at Roslyn High School.
Greg Fried was an outstanding teacher, track and cross country coach from Roslyn High School, and the Manhasset and Wheatley schools for over 40 years. He passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in November, 2010. His students, athletes and peer coaches were a huge part of his life. They all brought him joy and satisfaction from their personal and athletic growth through hard work and dedication.
