St. Anthony’s Midfielder Brendan Conroy (#25) will play for the U.S. Military Academy next year.

West Point comes calling and Conroy says ‘yes sir’ By David J. Criblez

Lacrosse player Brendan Conroy, 17, of Muttontown recently signed a letter of intent to play for Army at the United States Military Academy at West Point next year. The high school senior currently plays midfield for St. Anthony’s and his team captured the Catholic High School Athletic Association Championship against Chaminade earlier this year.

When asked why he chose West Point, Conroy stated, “It was just a gut feeling that I had. I knew I belonged there. I fell in love with the people and the community. I’m going to have a lot of opportunities coming out of West Point. I hope to progress and learn a lot about leadership and control. I think that will help me go far in life.” Conroy started playing lacrosse in the 2nd grade following in his older brothers’ footsteps. (Continued on page 5)

Nassau police say Roslyn Savings Bank robber had inside help It didn’t take long for Nassau County Police Department Robbery Squad detectives to piece together what actually happened at the Roslyn Savings Bank in Woodbury, according to a police report. They had gotten a call about a robbery at the bank at 8081 Jericho Turnpike at 3:42 PM on Monday, November 14th. When they arrived, they were told that a white male had passed a note to a teller demanding cash and that the teller had handed over an undisclosed amount of currency. But they quickly concluded that

they weren’t dealing with a lone bank robber. Instead, they say, the teller, Brian Bolivar, 20, of Huntington had conspired with the suspected thief, Nikko Carlson, 20, of Huntington Station to stage their encounter. They arrested both men without incident and recovered the loot. Bolivar and Carlson are being charged with Grand Larceny 3rd Degree and Conspiracy 5th Degree. They were arraigned on Tuesday, November 15th at the First District Court in Hempstead.

Huminski captures ‘Turkey Trot’ title The Incorporated Village of Bayville and the Fetzer family hosted the 4th annual Turkey Trot 5K Run & Children’s Chicken Run (1K) to benefit the Matthew Fetzer Foundation on Saturday, November 12th at West Harbor Beach in Bayville. The race, which drew over 150 participants, is held in the memory of Matthew Fetzer, son of Bill and Ann Fetzer of Bayville, who died on April 7, 2005 at the age of 10 from leukemia. The Fetzer family holds a year-long toy drive for the children with cancer at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, Winthrop Hospital in Mineola and Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park. They throw parties at the hospitals during various holidays where they give away toys to children in the cancer ward. While most toy drives occur during the holiday season, the Fetzer’s toy drive goes all year long. This year alone they have held 15 parties with more to come during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. “The kids recognize us and when they hear we are coming, they know a party is happen-

ing,� said Ann Fetzer, Matthew’s mother. “This was Matthew’s wish. He would always say, ‘We have to help these kids.’ The toy drive would be a dream come true for him.� The Fetzer family misses Matthew terribly and they strive to keep his upbeat spirit alive. “I love hearing stories about Matthew and people showing me pictures of Matthew. I like when people come up to me and talk about him,� said Ann. “Doing the toy drive gets us through the holidays. Every day I say to myself, ‘I can’t believe he’s not here.’ It’s horrible. I could go to the hospital every day to do something. Tell me to go into Bayville Intermediate School and I can’t do it.� The day began with a children’s Chicken Run up West Harbor Road. Winners were: first place male – Chris Foglia (10), first place female – Maria Foglia (12), second place male – Oliver Gross (11), second place female – Katherine Simon (9), third place male – Jeremy Hees (9) and third place female – Claire Simon (6). The winner of the 5K race was Austin Huminski, 23, of Oyster Bay who captured his third local title after winning

the Brooke Jackman Race for Literacy in May and the Bayville 5K Run in June. Huminski completed the race in 17 minutes and 15 seconds. “The first mile and a half was smooth. But the second I made the turn around at the Centre Island police booth I hit that wind,� he said. Second place finisher Thomas Glenn of Levittown (17:24) had the lead but Huminski surpassed him. “He caught me around the turn at the police booth. I decided to draft behind him to conserve energy then I made the move to pull ahead,� said Huminski. “I knew I had that speed in me.� Huminski has established his own running club with his running pal Vince Giambanco called Citius (www., which is on the rise. “We are growing by leaps and bounds,� he said. “We picked up some fast runners. It’s cool that the running community knows who we are now.� Another member of the Citius team Samantha Snukis, 25, of Bayville was the first place female coming in at 19:05. Snukis also was the first place female in the Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run in October. This weekend she will be running her goal race - the “Rothman 8K� in Philadelphia, PA. The Trot was sponsored in part by the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association, Village Sports of Locust Valley, Dodds & Eder, North Shore Towing & Diving, Village Gourmet Catering & Deli, Bayville Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Thomas Finn, IGA Food Basket, Marty’s Party, Monti’s Auto Works and La Bussola Ristorante. All toys donated to the

Matthew Fetzer Foundation’s Toy Drive must be new and wrapped (no stuffed animals). Gift cards are accepted as well as video games, iPods, CDs and DVDs for the older kids. Toys can be dropped off at Village Gourmet Deli in Oyster Bay, Locust Valley High School, IGA-Food Basket in Bayville and at the Fetzer home located at 19 University Road, Bayville, NY 11709.

The Oyster Bay Town Board conducted a hearing regarding financing for a proposed expansion of the East Norwich Firehouse at its November 15th meeting. The East Norwich Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 is looking to expand its firehouse by approximately 6,400 square feet for the stor-

age of firefighting apparatus and administrative purposes. The department has petitioned the Town Board to authorize the issuance of $1,616,000 in tax-exempt obligations to provide funds for the project. “Under the internal revenue service code, if local municipality approves of borrowing the fire company can get a preferred rate,� said James Cammarata, attorney for the EN Fire Com-

pany. “This is not an obligation for the town.� Although the Town Board reserved decision on the matter in order to go over the figures, Town Supervisor John Venditto indicated that they were behind the fire company 100%. “The men and women of our fire districts know what they are doing. We trust your judgment and you’ve never led us in the wrong direction,� said the Supervisor. “Our financial people will look at the numbers but you can count on the support of this board.�

Mill Neck author focuses on LI and NYC shopping tips By David J. Criblez

Mill Neck resident Sharyne Wolfe has something all women want – a complete knowledge of the best places to shop in Manhattan and Long Island. The good news is she’s willing to share her tips in her new book, The Fashionista’s Shopping Guide to the Galaxy of Discount New York Fashion. On November 12th she held a signing at Forest Books in Locust Valley where fans picked up copies of her paperback and chatted about fashion. Wolfe teaches fashion design at Nassau Community College. When she broke her wrist she couldn’t drive because she has a stick-shift car therefore she sat home and wrote. “I always wanted to do something like this,” she said. “I started writing and the project just kept growing.” The book focuses on how to be stylish yet cost conscious while finding the best bargains on Long Island and in Manhattan. Some of the local places featured in the book included Next to New in Oyster Bay, Worth Repeating in Locust Valley, Revivals in Roslyn, Unique

A season for sharing


s the holiday season approaches, many of us are planning celebrations. We enjoy the tradition of giving gifts to loved ones, thanking those with whom weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shared joy and love throughout the year. We have giving on our minds. And as we come together to exchange gifts, we enjoy the bounty of the season, gathering around tables of plenty. But this is also the time when our thoughts should turn to the less fortunate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those who have little, who may get no gifts at all, and those who are hungry. Many of the most vulnerable members of society â&#x20AC;&#x201D; our children and senior citizens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are at risk in a weak economy. Many families have breadwinners who are out of work, and they, too, find themselves among the ranks of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;food insecureâ&#x20AC;? or the hungry. There has been a jump in the number of food banks and charities that now find erstwhile donors coming to their doors seeking help. Their resources are being strained to accommodate the need. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just now; the need is year-round, as more of our citizens find that food is becoming unaffordable. Island Harvest, the largest hungerrelief organization on Long Island, serves as a bridge between those who have surplus food and those who need it. Its staff and volunteers collect food from more than 800 restaurants, caterers, farms and other businesses and

Harvest 199 Second St., Mineola, N.Y. 11501 (516) 294-8528 â&#x2013; The Interfaith Nutrition Network of Hempstead 211 Fulton Ave., Hempstead, N.Y. 11550 distribute it to a network of nearly 570 soup kitchens, food pantries and low-income day-care centers as well as senior, youth outreach and rehabilitation centers in the area. Having reported a sharp increase in demand for food in recent years and with no end in sight, Island Harvest says it can use help with food collection and delivery during the holiday season. It accepts all types of canned and packaged food, including frozen turkeys, canned vegetables, fruit, tuna and canned meat as well as cereal and shelf-stable milk. Donations of nonperishable food can be dropped off at any McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Panera Bread or Bristal Assisted Living locations. Frozen turkey donations are being accepted only at Panera and Bristal locations. Island Harvest also accepts monetary donations, which help fuel its trucks and pay for volunteer training and advocacy. Donations can be made online, using a credit card, at Checks and money orders can be sent to Island Harvest, 199 Second St., Mineola, N.Y. 11501. And of course, volunteers are always welcome. To volunteer, call (516) 294-8528.

The Interfaith Nutrition Network of Hempstead, which helps hungry and homeless Long Islanders, runs 19 soup kitchens, including the Mary Brennan INN in Hempstead and the Long Beach Food and Friendship INN, as well as three homeless shelters. In addition to nonperishable food, it accepts sandwiches and monetary donations, which can be made online or by sending a check or money order to 211 Fulton Ave., Hempstead, N.Y. 11550. Volunteers and those willing to sponsor a drive or a meal are also welcome. More information can be found on the INNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, Besides food, there are other ways we can help the needy in our midst. Warm clothing, blankets and toys are always welcome. The INN accepts personal and baby-care items as well as clothing. And the U.S. Marine Corps will host its annual Toys for Tots Drive, with collection boxes set up throughout local communities. A donation to Toys for Tots can make the holiday season brighter for a child who might not otherwise get any gifts. We hope those who are more fortunate will remember those in your communities who are not, and give what you can this season. And when the holidays are over, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget that in the months ahead, particularly over the summer, there will be just as much need for food and clothing donations. Keep the giving spirit going into next year. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to look very far to find real need.

The Boutique

Thanks for sticking with us To the Editor: A few weekends back, I was down at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, which itself reflected the fantastic weather of the day, particularly the new turf field and affiliated improvements. The fences that kept folks out from the construction were removed, and 2 groups of young people were on the field, some playing pick-up soccer and others football. Several people were walking or jogging around the field, while others were just sitting under the new gazebo or walking the perimeter of the entire recreational area beside newly planted landscaping and newly installed antique lamp-posts. Not as obvious,

but no less important, were the substantial drainage and filtration improvements (with more to come for the balance of the park). Although this is just phase 1 of a 3 phase renovation of the Park (as well as of Firemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Field), and while there will no doubt be hurdles to clear down the line (which I am confident will be cleared), it was a tremendous thing to see. In all of it, a thank you for the tireless efforts of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Youth Athletic Association in having the foresight to initiate all of it and the perseverance in pushing things forward, and for the many Town personnel who retained the patience and confidence in the Oyster BayEast Norwich community to see it to such a very successful completion, particularly

New idea for Cerro property To the Editor: I have a great idea for the Cerro Wire property, turn it

into a railroad station. The Syosset and Hicksville train stations parking lots are maxed out. Another train station would help the parking situation. There would only be traffic in the early morning and in the evening and the weekend will be very quiet for the residents. They could even build a small strip mall there with stores to service the commuters. PATTY BREXEL BAYVILLE

On their day, vets recall serving in many ways (Continued from page 1) women who served or still serve America,” said Commander Butt. “Some have endured great hardships, separation from family and drastically altered lifestyles. Some have experienced the horrors of war. All sacrificed something so that we could

enjoy the freedoms we have today.” He continued, “Today is important because we choose to honor the living veterans from the Greatest Generation to the Latest Generation. But we must honor them with deeds, not just words. We must heed

the words of our first Commander-in-Chief, General George Washington who said, ‘The willingness with which our young people will fight in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were

treated and appreciated by their country.’” American Legion Chaplain Harold Havekotte asked everyone to gather together for a collective prayer. “We bow our heads in thankfulness for the victories. Thou hast granted us – and to those peoples who have

united with us to stamp out the evils of aggression, intolerance and greed,” he said. “Grant us now thy continued blessing upon unity and strength, that makes victories possible in war, that we may win greater victories of peace.” Commemorative wreaths

were laid at the veterans’ monuments in front of Town Hall by Ferris and Fred Maroni. The service concluded with the veterans hand saluting during the playing of “Taps.” A post-ceremony reception was held at the Life Enrichment Center at Oyster Bay on East Main Street.

Conroy says ‘yes sir’ to Army Maine Maid Inn is worth landmarking, claim experts place. Alexandra Parsons Wolfe, Director of Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities, discussed the Maine Maid Inn’s architectural significance. “Admittedly the building has lost some of its architectural integrity but it still is historically significant. There’s plenty of cultural significance on this building therefore that alone is reason enough to designate it as a Town of Oyster Bay landmark,” she said. “There’s a strong physical relationship between the Jericho Preserve, Elias Hicks’ house, the Jericho Quaker meeting house and Valentine Hicks’ house. If the Maine Maid Inn is lost, the larger story can be lost.” Theodore Roosevelt re-enactor James Foote stepped up to the podium, out of character, and stated, “I’ve witnessed the slow loss of historical structures that’s why I support landmarking the Valentine Hicks house because it fits into a puzzle of other historical structures within the immediate area. It’s important that we keep a sense of our history to understand where we are going.” By request from the Supervisor, Foote quickly noted what Colonel Roosevelt would say. “A nation’s possibility of achieving greatness lies in the present but nothing helps it more to achieve that possible greatness than its consciousness of past achievements,” said Foote as TR. There was some opposition to the Town ac-

quiring the property. Larry Sklar of Jericho said, “We already have the Jericho meeting house, which is a landmark. I don’t know why we need two? I would love to use that $700,000 to make a monument park for all the soldiers and war veterans that lived in the Town of Oyster Bay who served in 10 wars.” David Husing of Bayville was more concerned from a financial perspective. “If you grant the landmarking status then you should make sure no money comes from the tax payers of the Town of Oyster Bay for any work involved on the project.” John Collins, a longtime member of the Town of Oyster Bay Landmarks Preservation Commission, said the Maine Maid Inn application is one of the most significant he has seen in the entire history of the Landmarks Commission. “There’s no question about the historical associations and architecturally I think it’s a strong application as well,” he said. “There’s a lot to be learned from buildings like this. Historical buildings are a tangible link to the past.” In closing, Venditto and the Board reserved decision on the landmark status. However, the Supervisor indicated which way he was leaning. “Once in a while the opportunity comes along to make a statement and I think maybe this is an opportunity for all of us to re-affirm our historical perspective,” he said. “We can’t go back and change history but we can preserve and respect it.”

Save the Memories

St. Anthony’s High School senior Brendan Conroy of Muttontown, flanked by his parents Anthony and Marianne, recently signed a letter of intent to play for West Point. noted that his mentors are Mike Channenchuck and his faceoff coach Matt Schomberg The popularity of lacrosse is growing and Conroy sees that trend continuing. “Kids are growing up with lacrosse and it’s just a matter of time before the NLL (National Lacrosse League) becomes a lot bigger than it already is,” he said. Conroy will be headed

to West Point with his long time friend and teammate Timmy Stackpole of Massapequa who plays long pole defense. Together they were a big part of the championship win against Chaminade, which was a huge moment for both of them. “I really felt like I contributed to the team,” said Conroy. “It was great to be a part of something that everybody was striving for.”

(Continued from page 1) takes issue with the historical significance aspect of the building,” said Venditto. “My instinct is this is something we should be doing.” Thomas Abby, Clerk of Jericho Quakers, stated, “We urge the Town Board to award the Valentine Hicks home landmark designation. The decision will help give the Maine Maid Inn its rightful place in American history as well as facilitate efforts to preserve it for future generations.” Powerpoint presentations were delivered by Dr. Kate Velsor of SUNY Old Westbury and Director of the Underground Railroad Teaching Partnership as well as Betsy Murphy, librarian of the Jericho Library and Jericho historian. Murphy even read letters from second graders from Robert Seaman Elementary School in support of saving the Maine Maid Inn. Jennifer Sappell, Executive Director of Long Island North Shore Heritage Area, feels Old Jericho is being stripped of its history. “This is a story of ordinary people who led extraordinary lives. These people took risks, made a difference and helped to change the world,” she said. “When places disappear, memories die. Let’s not let that happen.” Howard Kroplick, President of Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society, noted that the hamlet of Jericho was the center of the Vanderbilt Cup Race (1904-10) and the Maine Maid Inn is situated in the location where several major vintage car events took

(Continued from page 1) “I always tried to play with the older kids so I could get better,” he said. As a young man, Conroy was a snowboarding champion but decided to further pursue the sport of lacrosse instead. “Lacrosse was something I could do well and I knew it would take me somewhere,” he said. “Snowboarding is a solo sport, however lacrosse is a team effort. Lacrosse taught me more about friendship and working with others.” In the 6th grade Conroy began to play competitively when he joined the Long Island Express summer travel team. He was so successful that he was invited to the Nike Blue Chip camp in Maryland where college scouts attend. “It’s pretty nerve-wracking process,” he admitted. “If you miss a groundball, you’ve got 70 heads watching.” Standing 6 ft. tall and weighing in at 191 lbs., Conroy describes himself as a “spontaneous player” who stays on his toes.

Falcons lose in semi finals The Locust Valley High School Football team lost to the East Rockaway Rocks 3013 in the semi finals on Nov. 10th. The game was much closer than the score indicates. For the Falcons it was a season of seven straight wins, a loss in a game that probably shouldn’t have been played because of the weather conditions, a first round playoff victory and then defeat at Hofstra University. It was a terrific season for a team with a first year head coach and one that had many underclassmen playing in key positions. It was also a year that saw Locust Valley produce some exceptional football players, some of whom will be playing next year in colleges across the country. Alex Rawa the star wide receiver, to quote Glen Lavy a former LV coach, “Rawa is truly a Division I football player. He is the best that I have ever seen at that position for Locust Valley.” Quarterback Joe Jacobi has a cannon for an arm and will be playing somewhere after he graduates. Defensive end and tight end Tom McNamara could easily be All-County at both of these positions. These senior players anchored this outstanding LV squad. The game played on a perfect night at Hofstra saw Lo-

cust Valley score first. Jacobi faded back and behind excellent pass protection hit wide receiver Rawa for a 50-yard touchdown play. The Falcons were up 7-0. The Falcon defense managed to scoop up an East Rockaway fumble and drive down the field. It seemed that they could not be stopped. On a simple dive play into the end zone LV fumbled and East Rockaway recovered for a touchback. The Rocks then proceeded to march down the field and score so instead of the score being 14-0 with LV in front it was tied at 7. East Rockaway again marched down the field after an LV punt scored making it 14-7 East Rockaway. Locust Valley didn’t panic and again Jacobi was able to hit Rawa for a touchdown pass and it was 14-13. Unfortunately, the PAT went wide so at the half the Birds were down one point. The third quarter the Rocks continued to pound their running game against the LV but the Falcon defense held firm. Bad field position and a sack put the Green on their 2-yard line in a passing situation Jacobi was rushed, tried to pass, but was called for intentional grounding in the end zone and East Rockaway was awarded a safety, putting the Rocks in front 16-13. Rockaway would score two late touchdowns putting the game clearly in the win

column for the underdogs in the fourth quarter. The Locust Valley team had many seniors who all will be graduating and moving on to college. These seniors include: Chris Appell, Matt Valsecchi, Cody West, Tom Nastasi, John Keschl, Joe Jacobi, Nick West, Kevin Sabogal, John Johnson, Bradley Conn, Bobby Heney, Thomas Allen, Matt Formicola, Bobby Bleistein, John Ciarletta, Sean Rudowsky, Chris Murray, Ken Syrett, Tyler Fallon, Alex Rawa and Tom McNamara. This year’s coaching staff worked together for the first time. Head coach Matt McFarland was organized and his staff was first rate. Assistant coaches Jeff Schiereck, Mike LoGerfo and Tom DiNuovo have to be given credit for the outstanding job they did all year. Trainer Tim Bellisari is the best in Nassau County. The team was in shape and escaped serious injuries for the entire season. Next year the Green will have some underclassmen that have seen significant time playing this year and should help make sure that LV continues to be one of the better teams in Conference IV. Linebackers who were just sophomores, Matt Vezza and John Piscitello were good this year and will be much bigger next year. Marlon Maldonado at tackle this year was only a junior and he should be even better as a senior. Kevin Rieger was outstanding on the line and with another year should be All-County quality. Ryan Paniagua was an outstanding defensive end and he too next year will be counted upon. Finally Callum Ewen whose speed in the backfield or returning the ball can be electrifying will also be returning, which is exciting. This was a great year for Locust Valley football and every member of this team should hold their heads high and be proud.

St. Dom’s CYO 5th grade girls go undefeated The St. Dominic CYO 5th Grade Girls Soccer team continued its winning ways with victories over St. Aidan’s and Holy Spirit this past weekend. The team is currently undefeated and will head to the playoffs. St. Dom’s defense is unyielding and has allowed only six goals the whole season. Key defenders have been Broke Regan, Sidney Cunningham, Lindsey Purcell, Isabella Moore and Emma McGuckin. The offense for St. Dominic has scored over 42 goals this season and has spread out the scoring among its many talented players. Goals have been scored by: Nicole Coccia, Molly Milano, Catherine Williams, Catherine McCauliffe, Julia Cutajar, Grace Wiesenfeld, Erica Duke, Hannah McLaughlin and Charlotte Mahon. The offense has gotten a boost by all the assists that have been provided by Victoria Monteleone, Laura Regan, Caroline Finelli and Sarah Pantina. The team is coached by Tom Regan and

Portledge School announces Head of School appointment

Photo by David J. Criblez

The Locust Valley Jesters will present Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” at the Howard A. Schmock Auditorium at Locust Valley High School on November 19th & 20th.

Locust Valley Jesters to bring Wilder’s ‘Our Town’ to life By David J. Criblez

Thornton Wilder’s American classic, “Our Town,” will be revived this weekend by the Locust Valley Jesters at the Howard A. Schmock Auditorium at Locust Valley High School on November 19th & 20th. LVHS Principal Dr. Kieran J. McGuire will be pleased as the drama is noted to be his favorite. The stage will be rather bare with a lack of props just as Wilder intended. “Thornton Wilder didn’t

want the audience to sit back and relax and watch a show. He wanted them to be engaged and think about the play. You have to use your imagination,” said Director Abbe Gail Gross. “It’s about being present in your own life and appreciating the things around you.” The students have connected with Wilder’s material as they developed their characters and adapted to the tone of the show. Junior Ernest Schieferstein, 16, of Bayville narrates the show as the Stage Manager.

“I help the audience relate to the town and the characters,” he said. “I’m like Thornton Wilder in a character form.” Junior Teddy Kahn, 15, of Bayville landed the role of George Gibbs on a whim by trying out at the last minute. He likes the character because he’s a normal guy. “George is in an interesting position. He’s growing up but still trying to have fun and be a kid. I can identify with that.” Sophomore Alexander Van Patten, 15, of Bayville

plays Emily Webb’s father Mr. Webb who has many sensitive moments in the play. “You have to get in your character’s mind and think beyond what the script says,” he said. “You have to put yourself in the character’s shoes.” “Our Town” will be performed on Saturday, November 19th at 7:30 PM and Sunday, November 20th at 3 PM. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door. For group sales or more information, call (516) 2775144.

On November 10th, the Board of Trustees of Portledge School in Locust Valley appointed Simon OwenWilliams as its next Head of School. Owen-Williams succeeds Steven L. Hahn, who is retiring after six years as Head of School. Board President, Terri Keogh ‘85, said, “When Steve announced his retirement last March, we committed ourselves to a thorough national search that would identify the man or woman who will lead our school into an even brighter future. We are confident that Simon is the right person at this time in Portledge’s history.” Owen-Williams is currently Head of School at Carlisle School in Martinsville, Virginia. Carlisle is an independent day school that has expanded to three campuses and has grown to full enrollment under his leadership. He is a native of Wales and attended Exeter University in England, graduating with an honors degree in politics and completed a master’s degree in education at Columbia University. Betty Ann Roel, Chair of the Search Committee, commented, “Simon rose to the top of our list quickly after he was brought to our attention because of his successful experience as Head of School and his great reputation as an educational

Simon Owen-Williams leader and advocate for his school. His desire to return to Long Island complements an international perspective on education, both of which will serve Portledge well. He made a strong professional and personal impression on the parents, students, teachers and alumni as well as on the members of the Search Committee. We also visited Carlisle School and saw first-hand the outstanding job he has done at that school. Finally, his references were glowing. We welcome his leadership at Portledge.” “I am deeply honored to have been selected as the next Head of School at Portledge. I have known and respected the school for many years. This is a bit of a coming home for my wife, Candace, and me, and we welcome the many opportunities the school has before it,” said Owen-Williams, who formally begins his duties on July 1, 2012.
