A Special Evening for Seniors

A Special Evening for Seniors

The high school recognized the achievements of its best and brightest on June 6, handing out numerous scholarships, department awards and schoolwide awards at the annual Senior Awards night as proud families looked on.

Student Council President Katherine Cho began the ceremony with the Pledge of Allegiance, before Jada Smith led the attendees in singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The school’s jazz ensemble, directed by Jerry Cannarozzo, provided tasteful music before and during the event, including Steely Dan’s “Peg” and John LaBarbera’s “Tiger of San Pedro.”

“This is truly one of the special evenings for us here at the high school,” said Principal Charles Cobb. “Our students here are being recognized for their vast accomplishments, not only this year, but through their many years in the Deer Park school system.”

“Each and every one of us in this auditorium has been incredibly impressed by each and every one of you on the stage tonight, and I know all of us cannot wait to see what you do next,” said Associate Principal Sean O’Brien. “Please take this evening as an opportunity to celebrate the miles you put behind you as you prepare for the miles that lie ahead.”
