College Athlete Celebration Day


To celebrate the student-athletes who plan to continue playing their sport at the collegiate level, the Amityville Memorial High School athletic department hosted a College Athlete Celebration.

Coordinated by Evan Farkas, director of athletics, physical education and health, parents, coaches and district administrators gathered to honor the students’ dedication and commitment to their sport and to continuing their academic careers.

During the event, each of the nine student-athletes shared information about themselves including, the sport they play, what college they are headed to and what they look forward to most about attending college. After each student spoke, in unison, they placed the hat or helmet of the college they will attend on their head.

“Today is about celebrating the hard work, dedication and the commitment they made for, not only the last four years, but way beyond that,” said Farkas.

The district congratulates the following students on their academic and athletic accomplishments: Jonas Archer, Nassau Community College, football; Victor Cobos, Nassau Community College, soccer; Elijah Duff, Stony Brook University, football; Katherine Eastwood, Mount Ida College, volleyball; Haubry Gomez, Suffolk County Community College, soccer; Josue Martinez Garcia, Suffolk County Community College, soccer (not pictured); Jimmy Pierre Saint, Nassau Community College, football; Kevin Ramirez, Suffolk County Community College, soccer; Juan Salazar, Suffolk County Community College, soccer; and Michael Trant, Nassau Community College, baseball.


Students Work with BVCA to Beautify Amityville

More than 20 students from Amityville Memorial High School recently volunteered their time and joined forces with members of the Bay Village Civic Association to clean up the woods preserve on Ketcham Creek, as well as improve the landscaping appearance of the high school grounds.

The cleanup event was support by Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre, Stop & Shop and Raimo’s Pizza with assistance from AMHS teacher Cara Garofalo. Students worked diligently to remove plastic bags and debris from the wetlands. At the high school, volunteers pulled weeds and pruned garden beds at the main entrance. Purchased by the BVCA, new plants were added to garden beds and flowers were added around the electric sign facing Merrick Road, as well as the sign in the western parking lot.

Following the event, students and civic association volunteers enjoyed pizza and refreshments from Raimo’s Pizza in the high school cafeteria. For their efforts, students were awarded community service hours.

Awarding Outstanding Seniors


During the school’s annual Senior Awards Ceremony, more than 75 graduating seniors at Amityville Memorial High School received an excess of 200 scholarships and awards on June 2.

The ceremony featured opening remarks from Principal Dr. Clinton Grant, followed by Superintendent Dr. Mary Kelly and a rousing rendition of the national anthem from senior Amanda Boegle. Produced by Steve Carbo, the audience enjoyed a video montage of the seniors’ high school year.  

The awards and scholarships were a combination of in-district recognitions for academic, athletic or artistic excellence, and local community organizations wishing to bestow endowments for a range of accomplishments including community service. Organizations sponsoring scholarships included the American Legion Post 1015, the U.S. Army, the Kiwanis Club of Amityville, the Amityville Women’s Club, Amityville Chamber of Commerce, Bay Village Civic Association and the Amityville Parent-Teacher Council, among others.

In an auditorium filled with students, family and friends, administrators, faculty and members of the board of education were on hand to congratulate the students for their accomplishments. With recessional music performed by Director of Fine Arts Dr. Fran Fernandez, Dr. Grant concluded the event with closing comments and attendees were invited to the courtyard for light refreshments.

Honoring Student-Athletes


The athletics department held its annual Sports Awards Ceremony to celebrate the hard work, dedication and success of its junior varsity and varsity student-athletes on May 31.

Gathered in the high school auditorium, members of the track, volleyball, baseball, softball, tennis, football, soccer, cheerleading, wrestling and basketball teams took the stage to be recognized by their respective coaches. Each coach handed out the Coach’s Award, Most Improved Award and the season MVP Award to deserving athletes.

In the audience to laud the students for their achievements were parents, faculty, classmates, Second Vice President of the Board of Education Jeannette Santos, administrators and Superintendent of Schools Dr. T. Mary Kelly.

“It is wonderful to be here and celebrate our student-athletes for all their accomplishments,” said Evan Farkas, director of athletics, physical education and health. “We know how hard they work during the school year and not only in the classroom but on the field.”

Following the distribution of Gold Key Awards, students Jonas Archer and Kayla Miller were respectively presented with Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards. Additionally, student-athlete Lynda Pierre was designated Female Senior Athlete of the Year, while Tysheem Griffin and Josue Martinez Garcia tied for Male Senior Athlete of the Year.
