The Board of Education and Town of Oyster Bay recognized two Massapequa High School students at the Jan. 3 school board meeting for their heroic actions in November. While walking home from school one afternoon, Thomas L. and Scott R. were alerted to a kitchen fire at a house. Their efforts helped residents safely escape and minimize property damage by containing the fire to the oven. They also rescued family pets.
After a few remarks by Superintendent Lucille F. Iconis and high school Principal Brian Conboy, Thomas and Scott were presented with citations from Board of Education President Tim Taylor and Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino.
