Last night, the East Williston community came together to celebrate one outstanding educator from each of the three schools as recipient of the Simmons Award.
The award, the Simmons Award, named after Steve Simmons (Class of 1964), was started in 1996, when he, in appreciation of the extraordinary education he, his family and his classmates received here, donated $100,000 to the East Williston Education Foundation (the Foundation) to establish an annual awards night. As of last night, 100 staff members have been honored with certificates and monetary awards, in appreciation for what they contribute to the education of our students.
Kevin Meyers, a member of our mathematics department, was this year’s recipient from Wheatley. He was joined by Nathalie Brew from Willets Road and James Bloomgarden from North Side. Congratulations to all the recipients, and thanks again to Steve Simmons and his family for their generosity!
