Deer Park Trio Earn Medals at Special Olympics


Returning for the second consecutive year, Deer Park was represented by three students – Robert Frost Middle School eighth-grader Damian Capone, high school freshman Kerthana Omprakash and senior Emanual LaPorte – at the 2017 Special Olympics Long Island Spring Games North, held on May 20 at Bethpage High School. All three won medals for their determination and hard work.

“We are very proud of our students who worked so hard and trained many hours for their specific Olympic events,” said teacher Joyce Carmen.
