Massapequa High School Hall of Fame Inc.
The Hall of Fame seeks to recognize alumni who have achieved extraordinary success in their chosen field or have provided exemplary service to the schools, community or the family. The goal of the Hall of Fame is to promote school & community pride. Hall of Fame Members provide an excellent resource for career advisement and networking for current and future students.
Who we are:
The Massapequa Hall of Fame Inc. is a unique, diverse organization that gives current and retired staff members, Berner and Massapequa H.S. alumni and community leaders an opportunity to join together to support the students of Massapequa High School. The Board membership represents a cross-section of the Massapequa Community. As volunteers, they do not receive compensation for their participation. The organization does not receive funding from the school budget, but derives all revenue from fund-raising activities.
What we do:
Since 1995, the Hall of Fame has awarded 92 Scholarships to Massapequa High School graduates. In the Hall’s initial year one (1) $1,000 scholarship was awarded. In each succeeding year, additional scholarships of increasing value were awarded. Currently $2,000 scholarships are awarded to 12 recipients annually.
