Hicksville Public Schools 36th Annual Scholars Dinner

Class of 2024

Gail Schwartzman Mayerby Gail Schwartzman Mayer, HHS Class of 1973

The 36th Annual Scholars Dinner was held on April 11, 2024, at the Crest Hollow Country Club to honor 91 students from Hicksville High School’s Class of 2024.  The graduating seniors distinguished themselves through their academic performance, ranking in the top 20% of their graduating class.  Each student received an award, a cord to wear on their graduation gown, and a box containing a beautiful golden apple.  In addition, the valedictorian and salutatorian received special awards.  It was a beautiful evening, and the dinner was delicious!

The distinguished seniors continued a 36-year tradition by selecting one teacher to be honored from each of the district’s schools. This was the most favorite part of the evening. The students were grouped according to the first Hicksville school they attended and chose the honored teacher from this school.  The chosen honored teachers were the most influential and inspiring teachers the students encountered during their time enrolled in Hicksville’s schools.

The school administration attended the event, along with the Board of Education, department supervisors, building principals, Parent-Teacher Association presidents, just to list a few, and of course, the proud parents and family members of the scholars.

An interesting fact: This tradition continued even during the Covid lockdown when Mr. Williams, the High School Principal, hand-delivered golden apples to the homes of the honored students!

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2024!
