West Hempstead celebrates dedicated school board members


The West Hempstead School District celebrated School Board Recognition Week during their monthly meeting on Oct. 21.

Dr. Nichelle Rivers, the district’s director of performing, fine and culinary arts, presented a recorded musical performance and messages of gratitude from students. She then gifted each board member a hand-painted rock and personalized pillow completed by the district’s department of family and consumer sciences.

“You have given so much these past few months by your actions, generous leadership and kindness,” Rivers said. “You have given without expectation and found time to assist others, while supporting our superintendent and this administration team.”
