Deer Park Alumnus Carrel Joseph Plays Basketball for Haiti

High school Class of 2013 graduate Carrel Joseph recently played basketball in the FIBA Under 21 Caribbean Prequalifying Tournament for the Haitian National Team.

Joseph and his family moved to Deer Park in 2010 after they survived a devastating earthquake. He played two years of varsity basketball for the Falcons, winning league championships in 2012 and 2013, and advancing to the county finals in 2013. He then played four years of basketball at SUNY Cortland, where he scored 728 career points and earned 436 career rebounds while overcoming an ACL tear in his right knee during his junior year. His team played in the NCAA tournament during his sophomore year, when he scored 24 points in the SUNYAC championship game and was named MVP.

Splendid accomplishments by the district’s students were recognized at Deer Park’s June 18 Board of Education meeting, with Suffolk County legislators Susan A. Berland, Steven J. Flotteron and Tom Donnelly in attendance.

After Ron Becker was honored on his retirement from the Deer Park Arts Council, high school student Tianna Greene was recognized for being the winner of Suffolk County’s “The Truth About Stimulant Drinks” PSA video contest. Adviser Gregory Menig honored this year’s DECA student winners.

The winners of the 2018 Grand Concours National French Contest were resented by Ashley Rosenberg, the district administrator for ENL and world languages. Recognized for their achievement in this annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French were high school students  Matt Berhalter, Usihma Chowdhury, Roose Desir, Nilufer Dilmen, Rebecca Fox, Kevin Garcia, Richardson Greffin, Anniee Jeanite, Emily Kleiber, Gregory Lazarte, James Raymond, Sameer Riaz, Matthew Rosati, Salar Saeed, Catarina Silva, Yasmeen Syedda-Hensley and Esteysy Yanes Amaya, and Robert Frost students Kristin D’Souza, Victoria Egan, Arianne Hernandez, Saima Hoque, Sonam Kataria, Bartlett Polster, Naomi Sauveur, Adam Stevens, Doindra Talleyrand, Liah Vidal, Arunan Xavier and Michelle Xuan.

“This year, with the encouragement of our outstanding French teachers, Deer Park had 75 middle and high school students participate,” said Rosenberg. “I’m so pleased that of these participants, 29 were nationally recognized for their performance on the exam. It's such an impressive accomplishment, and these students should be immensely proud.”

The World Is Waiting for Deer Park’s 2018 Grads

The World Is Waiting for Deer Park’s 2018 Grads

It was a grand farewell to Falcons leaving the nest as the high school’s Class of 2018 celebrated the school’s 55th commencement on June 22. In keeping with tradition, the Roisin Dubh Pipe Band led the graduating seniors into the stadium. Providing the remainder of the music were the school’s symphonic and ninth-grade bands, directed by Jerry Cannarozzo.

Following a welcoming speech from Senior Class President Alan Korsiak, salutatorian Megan Zhang, a gifted flutist, used the silent moments of musicianship as metaphor to reflect on the moment the seniors found themselves in. “Beyond the horizon, the world is waiting,” she told her classmates.

Noting that her fellow seniors may not have known her well because she was often buried in her books studying at home, valedictorian Saraf Faruk said, “It’s amazing to think that we have come all this way, through 12-plus years of school together, and are finally graduating. We made friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. It’s both frightening and exciting to think that from this moment on, our lives will have changed. Everything we have learned is preparation for our adult lives.”

Eschewing a traditional speech, Superintendent Eva Demyen instead uniquely chose to test the grads with a series of inspirational quotes on courage ranging from Winston Churchill to “Harry Potter” wizard Albus Dumbledore and Atticus Finch from “To Kill a Mockingbird,” handing out gift cooler bags to those students who correctly identified the quotes’ sources.

Principal Charles Cobb paid heartfelt tribute to the late Donte McClurkin, whose family was on hand to receive his diploma, and reflected on the students’ many accomplishments throughout the year including academics, athletics, music and art, volunteerism and college acceptances.

“Be kind,” Cobb urged the new grads, before their tassels were turned, caps tossed and they had walked out as alumni. “Be kind to yourself, your friends, your families, to those you do not yet know, and to those who may be different than you. By treating each other with kindness, you will the opportunity every day to change the world.”
