Recognition of Excellence

Nine Bethpage High School seniors celebrated their most influential teachers in a special ceremony in May. An annual tradition celebrating its 12th year, the Recognition of Excellence dinner was designed to honor teachers who have inspired their students during their educational career in Bethpage. Seniors who participate in this tradition are selected by high school faculty, and each senior chooses one teacher from their elementary, middle and high school who was a mentor and had a positive impact on them. The evening included music from the high school jazz band, a buffet dinner and a presentation of plaques from each student to their teachers.
