Wantagh Key Club members were honored by district administrators, local and state officials and Wantagh Kiwanis officials during a pinning ceremony in the high school auditorium on Feb. 23. The Wantagh High School Key Club has increased its membership from 10 members in 2013-2014 to 100 members this current school year. During the ceremony, Wantagh Kiwanis President Heidi Felix congratulated the students on their dedication to community service. “You are all special,” Ms. Felix said. “You are now part of an international organization whose goal is helping people.”
Seniors Julia Laibach and Julia Lantier have advanced from semifinalist to finalist positions in the National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented students will continue alongside 15,000 chosen finalists to compete for one of 7,600 National Merit scholarships offered this spring, which altogether total $33 million.
Prior to the senior citizen viewing of the high school musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” members of the National Honor Society hosted the annual Intergenerational Dinner for the community’s senior citizens. Held in the cafeteria with a Parisian theme, the students donned red or black berets as they served a delicious hot meal before the show. Not only did the students feel good about giving back to the community, they had a great time mingling with the seniors.
Wantagh High School’s talented cast and crew drew a full house on opening night of Frank Loesser and Abe Burrows’ “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Under the direction of Heather Romano and vocal direction of David Burt, the cast and crew amused the audience with this tale about former window washer J. Pierrepont Finch (Tyler Dema) who carefully follows the advice of the book “How to Succeed in Business.” He eventually rises to the position of the World-Wide Wicket Company’s vice president of advertising and makes sure that everyone in a more powerful position is fired or transferred.
Thirteen members of the Wantagh High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America joined 382 Suffolk and Nassau County members at the Spring District Meeting at Molloy College to compete in various business events. During the annual event, three members placed in their respective divisions.
Four senior-athletes signed National Letters of Intent to continue playing soccer at national and regional colleges and universities next fall. Signing a National Letter of Intent is the highest honor for a high school athlete. The district congratulates Tori Flaherty (Marist College), Shannon Kingston (Georgian Court University), Jordyn Klapper (University of Vermont) and Chris Taibi (Marshall University) for this athletic accomplishment.

The evening featured words of wisdom from administrators and staff, musical interludes by the high school’s string chamber ensemble and the singing of the National Anthem by Kayla Knight.
