The district honored a pair of winners – Keira Husfeldt from JFK and Ava Panepinto from RCK – for this year’s Red Ribbon poster contest during the Dec. 14 Board of Education meeting.

The two students were presented with certificates and prizes by East Islip High School SADD Club members Aiden Furey and Alexa Smith, teacher and SADD adviser Bridget Lopiccolo, Islip Board of Education President Jessica Carney, and Superintendent John Dolan.

“The fifth-graders had amazing quotes on their Red Ribbons, which sent messages of making good decisions,” said Lopiccolo. “This program is so worthwhile and really helps the high school students that participate in it to be role models, and gives the fifth-graders great information about how to not make destructive decisions.”
