Legislator D’Amaro Honors JFK’s ‘Be Pool Smart’ Contestants


Fourteen JFK students – Noel Berrios, Victoria Crowther, Matthew Cruz Jr., Bryeanna Desvignes, Eadie Liu, Kayla Ketcham, Calvin Nguyen, Oviya Omprakash, Kayleigh Pellicano, Nicholas Petrizzo, Haille Rizzo, Ethan Ronquillo, Carlos Rubiano and Stephanie Sheeler - were recognized by Suffolk County Legislator Lou D’Amaro for entering his “Be Pool Smart” poster contest. Omprakash was named the overall second place winner in the contest.

“Thank you all for supporting both Oviya and our efforts to keep children safe in the water this year and always,” said D’Amaro, who made a personal visit to the school on June 14 to bestow certificates of distinguished achievement to each of the students, and a Legislative District 17 Pool Smart proclamation to Omprakash.
