Nassau County High School Athletics HOF Induction Process:
Nominees must exemplify the high standards of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and moral character. Longevity, without meaningful countywide impact, does not constitute appropriate credentials for Nassau County High School Athletics HOF consideration.
The categories of athlete, coach, contest official, administrator and related contributor are included on the nomination form for expediency in understanding the primary area in which an individual is to be considered for his or her achievements in interscholastic athletics. All candidates for the Nassau County High School Athletics HOF must be at least 35 years of age prior to December 1st of the applicable year in order to be considered for induction.
Nominees for the Nassau County High School Athletics Hall of Fame undergo a two-step process before being selected for induction. The 10 member Screening Committee determines which candidates are worthy of consideration and forwarded to the five member Selection Committee or placed in the “Hold for the Future Consideration” category. This category means a nominee may be considered again for induction for two consecutive years.
The Nassau County High School Hall of Fame will be governed by the Hall of Fame Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee consists of the Section VIII Executive Director, Nina Van Erk; Section VIII Male Vice President, Patrick Pizzarelli, CAA, Asst. Supt./Athletic Director, Lawrence Public Schools; Section VIII Female Vice President, Dawn Cerrone, Athletic Director, Garden City Public Schools; Media Representative, Carl Reuter; Sport Official Representative, Thomas O’Connor; and Nassau County Representative, Joseph Cairo.

7-30-15 | LEVITTOWN, NY - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano was joined today by Legislator Dennis Dunne and the Superintendent of Island Trees School District Dr. Charles Murphy in announcing plans to create an emergency shelter for families of first responders at Island Trees High School in Levittown.
County Executive Mangano stated, “The creation of this emergency shelter provides our first responders with peace of mind that loved ones are safe and secure while they protect impacted communities during tropical or winter storms, or other life threatening events. I thank County Legislator Dennis Dunne, the Island Trees Board of Education and Superintendent Dr. Charles Murphy for their enthusiastic cooperation in making this much needed shelter plan a reality.”
The agreement between Nassau County and the Island Trees School District will enable families of first responders to be located at a safe central location during a declared emergency. This shelter only becomes operational once there is a declared emergency necessitating residential evacuations. Island Trees High School is an ideal shelter location as it is located in central Nassau County, away from vulnerable shorelines with excellent access to main roads and major thoroughfares.
“Island Trees is the perfect home for this emergency shelter,” said Legislator Dunne. “Its’ central Nassau location allows our hardworking policemen, firemen, AMTs and CERT volunteers the ability to do their jobs knowing that their families are safe and close by.”
The 2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season began on June 1st, with a peak season from mid-August to late October. Nassau County residents know all too well the threats posed by Hurricane Season.

· Familiarize yourself with Evacuation Routes from Coastal Evacuation Areas.
· Assemble an Emergency Go-Kit, keep it by their front door in a duffel bag and include enough supplies for everyone in the household for 5 days.
· Safeguard your pets by preparing a Pet Go-Kit.
