Student of the Quarter

Congratulations to Carle Place Middle/High school junior Matthew Tsivikas who recently earned the distinction of Nassau BOCES “Student of the Quarter” for the second academic quarter. Matthew was honored at a recent BOCES Board meeting held at the Joseph M. Barry Career and Technical Education Center for the work ethic and leadership he demonstrates in the Construction Trades program he is enrolled in there.

“Matthew is an extremely bright young man who has always been very good at working with his hands,” said teacher Charlotte Lipson, who has known Matthew since the seventh grade. “It has really changed his life.”

The program has enabled Matthew to learn about all facets of construction, including framing, electrical work and plumbing. Nassau BOCES officials awarded Matthew a certificate of achievement for this impressive accomplishment.
