Congratulations to Maeryam Nasari 10th grade student at Hicksville High School. Maeryam won first place among our HS students who participated in our Voice of the Democracy audio essay contest "What Makes America Great" sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Her essay was then submitted to the regional competition which includes several Long Island School Districts.  Maeryam won first place again in Nassau County and 2nd place in the Regional Competition. Jonas Edgarov and Alish Shah won 2nd and 3rd place, respectively. 

In February, William M. Gouse Jr. VFW Post 3211 will recognize all the students who won and the first place students will read their essays aloud to the gathered veterans and local politicians and community members.

Congratulations to the students and their teachers at the HS: Ms. Jacqueline Purcell, Dr. Andrea Maxeiner, Dr. Piscitelli and Ms. Cardello.
