Schreiber High School Graduates Awards Ceremony included Pride in Port awards and a scholarship. Recipients are chosen based on their high level of “Pride in Port.”

The Barbara Faticone Pride in Port Scholarship is given to a senior who best demonstrates the same volunteer qualities of the Pride in Port committee’s beloved co-chair, Barbara Faticone.  A lifelong resident of Port Washington, Faticone’s community involvement spans 50 years with dozens of organizations.

Based on her dedication to our community, Rebecca Orlick was chosen as the recipient of the 2019 Scholarship. “It is impressive and heartwarming to learn how many things the students volunteer for while still in school,” Faticone said. “Rebecca truly exemplifies what Pride in Port is all about. We are very proud to honor her!”

Pride in Port Community Service Awards are given to seniors who make significant contributions to Pride in Port, such as the pep rally, parade, etc. The 2019 Community Service Award recipients are Symphony Chang and Marissa Miscioscia. The Pride in Port committee extends thanks and appreciation to these students for their exceptional dedication to the community.

This year’s Pride in Port celebration will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14. The day’s events begin with a parade at 11:30 a.m., Senior Citizen luncheon at 12:30 p.m., homecoming football game at 1:30 p.m. and the “Taste of Port Washington” dinner dance at 7 p.m. Visit Pride in Port’s Facebook page for details.
