Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Famularo is one of 15 individuals who has been recognized as a Nassau BOCES Education Partner Award Honoree. Sponsored by the Nassau BOCES Educational Foundation, this prestigious award honors educational leaders, organizations, school administrators, school board members, staff, students, teachers and Nassau BOCES employees who share the organization’s commitment to providing the best possible education to learners of all ages and abilities and who have had a profound effect on education.
Nassau BOCES Board President Susan Bergtraum said on behalf of the organization, “[The honorees] share our commitment to create the safest and best educational environments where all students can thrive. As always, we are grateful for your support of our students and programs.”
During the Jan. 21 Bellmore Board of Education meeting, Reinhard Principal Patricia Castine presented Dr. Famularo with a trophy in recognition of his award and to thank him for his many years of “principled leadership.” She said, “We feel fortunate to be able to experience your outstanding leadership every day. You have positively impacted our community of learners, our leadership team and beyond throughout your work locally and at the county and state level.
Dr. Famularo said that the award “is a team effort,” and that nothing could be possible without the support of the Board of Education, administration, faculty and community.
