The Mustang has Arrived

In a special ceremony on May 13, Mineola High School officially accepted and acknowledged the donation of a Mustang statue for the front of the school. The Mustang statue was originally owned by the Village of Mineola and was situated at Jericho Turnpike and Mineola Boulevard. The donation, move and beautification of the Mustang was made possible by many members of the community including: Avelino and Tony DeSousa; Justin Burke and Daniel Correia from Winthrop University Hospital; Lou Caruso of J&L Concrete; Big Apple Building Supply; the Village of Mineola mayor, deputy mayor and trustees; and Winthrop University Hospital. The new Mustang stands proudly in front of the school’s main flagpole.

“I myself had walked passed this statue many times and have always admired its regal beauty,” Board of Education President Christine Napolitano said. “The board and I are extremely thankful. We know that many wonderful memories will be made and photographed before this statue.”
