The East Meadow School District welcomed 27 of the 44 staff members retiring at the end of the 2017-18 academic year during a Board of Education meeting on June 21 to acknowledge the individuals for their service and dedication.

“On behalf of the entire district, I thank our retirees for their dedication to the students of East Meadow and for developing a love of learning among our children,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Card earlier this month. “I wish them much happiness as they begin the next chapter of their lives.”

The soon-to-be retirees and family members gathered at the Leon J. Campo Salisbury Center for a reception and awards ceremony hosted by the Board of Education. Those in attendance had given more than 600 years of combined service to district. Assistant Superintendent for Personnel and Administration, Anthony Russo, led the ceremony by announcing each staff member, while Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. David Casamento, presented plaques of recognition to each retiree.

Board trustee Brian O’Flaherty was also recognized for his fifteen years of commitment and service to the district with a presentation to acknowledge his last meeting as a Board member.

“I’d like to thank Brian for his years of service and loyalty to the district and Board of Education,” said Board President Scott Eckers.
