Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano was on hand for the unveiling of Hicksville High School’s Art Honor Society display, at the Nassau County Health and Human Services building, this week. And he presented citations to each of the participating students.
“It is important that we take the time to honor talented young people who are willing to give of their time and energy to improving the lives of our citizens – and, bringing joy to those who especially appreciate art!” County Executive Mangano said.
Joining the County Executive at the event were Legislators Rose Walker and Laura Schaefer; Social Services Commissioner John Imhof; and the school’s superintendent, principal, art teacher and Board of Education president.
These talented students must maintain a GPA of 95 or above to part of the National Art Honor Society.
“This exhibit by the Hicksville National Honor Art Society’s students is a testament to the talent and dedication of our local students, and we take pride in recognizing and praising their good work,” Mangano said. “I am delighted and proud to recognize the talents of our youth by providing them an opportunity to showcase their work.”
