At the Valley Stream Central High School District’s Nov. 14 Board of Education Meeting, Central High School’s Future Business Leaders of America organization formally extended gratitude and presented a gift in honor of School Board Recognition Week. Sponsored by the New York State School Boards Association, this appreciation opportunity was observed during the last week in October.

FBLA students have achieved numerous awards over the years, including several top distinctions at the FBLA National Championships and New York State Leadership Conference.

On behalf of the FBLA, Nader and Mr. Bakalov unveiled a framed photo collage featuring the local, state and national champions. They presented this gift to Board of Education President William Stris, Vice President John Maier and Trustees Kenneth Cummings, Dr. Sean Douglas, Armando Hernandez, James Lavery, Lisa Pellicane, Toni Pomerantz and Ingrid Wyllie-Dacon and thanked them for their support of programs that broaden students’ experiences and prepare them for the college and careers.
