Business Honor Society Welcomes New Members

Massapequa High School’s Business and Marketing Honor Society welcomed 47 new members at its recent induction ceremony. They were recognized for their involvement and success in business education classes.

The inductees joined the 270 students who have previously been welcomed into the honor society over the past 12 years. Each new member received a card, certificate and pin. They were officially part of the honor society after reciting an oath.

To be eligible for admission into the honor society, students must currently be enrolled in a business or marketing course, must complete three units of study in business education by the end of senior year, have an overall grade point average of a B or higher, and a GPA of B+ or higher in business courses. They must also demonstration character, leadership and service both in the classroom and through extracurricular involvement.

“We celebrate the exceptional achievement of our inductees,” said Patricia LiVecchi, supervisor of Massapequa’s career and technical education programs. “Being inducted into the Business and Marketing Honor Society is a testament to their hard work, dedication and commitment to excellence in their business coursework.”

Senior members of the honor society also received their honor cords to wear at graduation. Breakfast and refreshments were provided by students from family and consumer science classes.

Massapequa High School’s business department includes School-to-Career Coordinator Denise DeLury and business education teachers Charles Everitt, Jeannette Gillam Christine Poggioli and Adrienne Scamardella.
