PTA Council Honors Deborah Pearsall at Scholarship Brunch
The Glen Cove Council of PTAs recently held it’s
annual Community Scholarship Brunch at the Swan Club. This year, the
Council had the pleasure of honoring retired Glen Cove School District
teacher, Deborah Butler Pearsall. Proceeds from the brunch are used to
provide scholarships to members of the GCHS Class of 2013.
Ms. Pearsall retired last year after many years of dedicated service to
the children of Glen Cove. As advisor to Glen Cove High School’s DECA
club, Ms. Pearsall led the club to many successful seasons and many
awards, including being named DECA advisor of the year for New York
State in 2012.
The day’s events began with a performance by the GCHS Jazz Band under
the direction of Nicholas Carbuto. On hand to help honor Mrs. Pearsall
were the District’s incoming Superintendent, Maria Rianna and Assistant
Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael
Israel. Also joining the honoree were Glen Cove City Mayor Ralph
Suozzi, City Council Members Reggie Spinello and Anthony Gallo, State
Assemblyman Chuck Levine and Judge Richard McCord.
Colleagues, former students and family members offered wonderful stories
and glowing tributes to a teacher that made a difference in her
student’s lives. Many members of the school community were on hand to
enjoy the day, purchase raffle tickets and help make the day a success.
Glen Cove PTA Council thanks all those individuals and businesses that
supported the day to help make the future brighter for the graduating
seniors of Glen Cove.
