Bellport High School’s 22 summer graduates processed through the aisles of the auditorium to the cheers of family and friends during the annual summer graduation, held on Aug. 21.

During the momentous occasion, Principal Timothy Hogan congratulated the students on this achievement and told them to never doubt their worth or their potential to impact those around them.

He also shared that successful leaders know their content, are passionate about what they do and have a genuine interest in the well-being of others. “Everyone here today has value in the world,” he said.  

Following Mr. Hogan’s address, Board of Education President E. Anne Hayes and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Giani certified that the students had met New York State’s requirements for graduation. The graduates then moved their tassels from right to left to signify becoming Bellport High School alumni.

As part of the presentation of diplomas, summer school Principal Erika Della Rosa introduced each graduate and spoke about their future plans, including nursing, watch making, music, military service and business. The graduates then walked across the stage to receive their diplomas from Mr. Hogan, Ms. Hayes, Board of Education trustee Jack Nix and Dr. Giani. 

The District extends its congratulations and wishes for future success to the graduates.
