When tuning into the District’s YouTube channel to view the latest streamed Board of Education meeting, a new face has popped up on the virtual screen. During the Sept. 23 Board of Education meeting, Student Council President and Bellport High School senior Jack Frankie was appointed as the board’s newest student ex-officio board member for the 2020-2021 school year.

President E. Anne Hayes welcomed Jack to his new position and said she will look forward to hearing his report each meeting. During his first report to the board, Jack relayed that school opened smoothly and students are cooperative and compliant with wearing masks. During future meetings, his job will be to report high school activities and happenings to the board and to relay important board business to the student council.

“I am very excited to tell the Board of Education all of the great things that are happening at the high school despite the pandemic,” Jack said. “I think the high school is in the best shape it’s ever been.”

In addition to his Student Council presidency, Jack is a member of the jazz band and plays the trumpet and euphonium. He’s an Advanced Placement student and a former cross-country athlete. His biggest interest, however, is acquiring his certification and flying hours as a student-pilot at BOCES, where he is in his second year of study to fly small planes and hot air balloons. Jack explained that his goal is to pursue a major in aviation management and to possibly pursue all FAA certification and licensing, in addition to pursuing space travel with NASA or Space X.
