Herricks High School’s Man’s Inhumanity to Man class, a semesterlong social studies Participation in Government elective, is raising awareness and sensitivity to a critical issue, hate crimes, that the world continues to encounter. The group of seniors felt it was important to inform their peers about this problem to help cultivate a widespread population of people who will strive to prevent it.
Herricks High School’s Football Team and Student Government united in assembling the district’s inaugural Field of Honor as a tribute to our nation’s veterans and servicemen and servicewomen. More than 120 flags mounted on 8 ft. poles were placed on the field and dedicated to brave individuals who have made the ultimate sacrifice to serve the country. Each flag reflected a $40 donation to the Northport VA Medical Center, and a grand total of $1,881.37 was presented in the form of a check during a ceremony held on Dec. 18.
