John W. Dodd Junior High School
Freeport NY, October 26, 1999

A beaming Jim Brown, Principal of Dodd Jr. High School looked on as the top sixty six students in the class of eighth graders were inducted into the National Junior High School Honor Society. Of the approximately five hundred students in the eighth grade class, these sixty six students maintained a ninety average or better all through seventh grade, qualifying them to be inducted into the Honor Society.

Superintendent Josephine Moffett commended these students, saying that they were role models for the other students. Deputy Mayor Renier Frierson-Davis, representing the Mayor and the Board of Trustees of the Village, congratulated the students on their scholarship and academic excellence. The audience was filled with dignitaries in honor of the students high achievement. Besides the Superintendent of Schools, the District Clerk and assistant superintendent of personnel attended the festivities. Board members Lisi and Muscara were there along with Julius Pierce, one of Freeport's famous retired policeman. The guest speaker was Mr. Julius Brown, an alumnus of Dodd Jr. High School and the assistant principal of Uniondale High School. The Kiwanis Club sent representative Juanita Dash to honor the achievement of the students.

Joe Scannell of Rockville Centre, a former ADA of Nassau County and candidate for the Nassau County Legislature, took time away from his busy schedule telling this reporter that it was gratifying to see such a large and enthusiastic turn out and the proud faces of the parents. by LILKER
