The district congratulates MHS senior Markella Kiriakes on being the recipient of the Nassau BOCES Education Partner Award, an honor usually reserved for educators, board members and organizations.

Markella was nominated for this award based on her outstanding contributions to our school community. As a student activist, leader, volunteer and role model, she brings her positive energy and collaborative spirit to countless clubs and activities, including the Dignity Club, Thespian Society, Political Action and Debate Club, World Language Club and Mustang Media Broadcast. She is also part of the Girls Varsity Golf Team, a member of the Student Service Center, a student ambassador at Camp Invention and a volunteer worker in the high school office.

As her senior project, Markella created the “Zen Den”, a space within the guidance department for mindfulness and meditation that will remain as a testament to her desire to help other students and to leave an indelible mark on the high school.

Markella and the other honorees will be recognized on Apr. 27 at the sixteenth Annual Education Partner Awards Gala, hosted by the Nassau BOCES Educational Foundation.

Bright Lights Award

Congratulations to Kathleen Sheehan for being honored with the Bright Lights Award by the Association of Suffolk Supervisors for Educational Technologies (ASSET) for her dedication and innovation.

Ms. Sheehan is our Bright Light because when she’s not teaching 3D modeling, digital storytelling and design rich coursework, she’s supporting teachers, students and administrators with the integration of technology.

She has a can-do, always-does attitude and is omnipresent at MHS, working before, during and after school in our Fab Lab as well.
