Four members of the Fire Island School District learning community were honored by SCOPE Education Services for their dedication in helping to make Fire Island the vibrant district that it is.

During the organization’s 16th Annual School District Awards Dinner in March, veteran teacher Karen McNulty received the Teacher Service Award, veteran paraprofessional Dawn Lippert received the Support Service Award, veteran Woodhull PTA member and past president Tara Heslin received the Community Service Award, and veteran Board of Education member and current Board vice president Vernon Henriksen received the Board Service Award. The award recipients' combined service to the Fire Island School District exceeds 80 years, with all four recipients working concurrently for over 14 years, but more importantly the effect of their service on the lives of students has been immeasurable.

SCOPE Education Services is a Board of Regents chartered organization that has provided services to Long Island schools since 1964. The SCOPE awards dinner is an annual event honoring members of school districts across Long Island who have been selected by their respective superintendents for recognition.
