Wheatley has an incredibly talented study body, involved in so many activities both inside and outside the classroom. Areas in which students have always excelled have been the fine and practical arts. From incredible stage performances to award-winning literary magazines and newspapers, Wheatley students have provided so much entertainment and value to our community. To recognize some of the students who have made special contributions in these areas, the faculty advisors invite them to a special dinner at The Inn at New Hyde Park.
In addition to a lovely sit-down dinner, the evening features student performances and a mini art show. The faculty advisors and students are reminded of the critical role they play in helping Wheatley remain a school where there is a place for everyone to shine.
This year, we were treated to musical performances by Krittika Prajapatti and the trio of Joyce Chen, Julian Chen and Andrew Kim.
A highlight of the evening is the presentation of the Eve and Jerry Jerome Award, an award given to recognize the music student who has demonstrated outstanding skill, character and citizenship at Wheatley. This year’s recipient is Joyce Chen!
Thank you to Dr. Klapper and her secretary, Mrs. Cerniglia, for helping to arrange such a wonderful event!
