Dedicated Seniors Earn Over $75K in Scholarships


The dedicated and hardworking leaders of the Class of 2016 earned more than $75,000 in scholarships at the high school’s annual Senior Awards, held in the auditorium on June 9. The awards, bestowed by teachers, administrators, local politicians and community members, served to honor a diverse array of student achievements, both in school and throughout the community.

After a sterling performance by the high school’s jazz ensemble, led by director Jerry Cannarozzo, Student Council President Papri Basu led the assembled students, administrators and families in the Pledge of Allegiance. Destiny Parsons, an outstanding vocalist in the school’s theater programs, then sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

As part of their recognition, the students received awards including certificates, checks, medals, plaques, proclamations and iPads. Three new student scholarships were debuted this year – the Suffolk County Police Department 1st Precinct Brotherhood Memorial Award, the Mid-Island Club Award and the Bill Borman Memorial Scholarship Award – and the alumni groups of the Classes of 1983, 1984 and 1995 again sponsored scholarships in a show of support for their alma mater.

“These students have made Deer Park High School a better place through their dedication to their academics, athletics, activities and community service,” said Associate Principal Jeanne Kozlowsky. “Our administrative team is grateful to all the donors who make these scholarships possible for our students.”

An AP Scholar with Honor, he is a member of Deer Park’s World Language Honor Society, Student Council and Newspaper Club.

He is first chair bassist in the jazz ensemble, plays on the junior varsity gold team and volunteers with the local Knights of Columbus.

HS Ensemble Brings Jazz to Rock Hall

The Deer Park High School Jazz Ensemble traveled to Cleveland, Ohio to play at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on May 26, and their performance was praised by both museum staff and visitors. The students and Director Jerry Cannarozzo toured the museum after their performance.

SADD and Texas Roadhouse Team Up to Help Vets

SADD club members at the high school raised $550 for Suffolk County veterans with an April 19 raffle held at the Texas Roadhouse in Deer Park. Ten percent of patrons’ food bills were also donated with the presentation of a special flier. The club, led by adviser Janet Werner, presented a check to the veterans on June 4.

Riviccio to Play Soccer for NYIT


High school senior and soccer star Russell Riviccio signed a National Letter of Intent on June 3 to continue his athletic career next fall at the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury. He was accompanied by his proud parents and Athletic Director Dominick Fontana. He plans to major in either accounting or health and wellness.

Riviccio, a center back who has earned All-League and Suffolk All-Star honors, chose NYIT’s Division II program after the university’s coach, Carlos Delcid, approached him during a tournament and expressed his wish for Riviccio to play for the Bears.
