Long Island's public education community gathered en masse on April 9, 2019, to pay tribute to some of its greatest advocates. That's when Nassau BOCES presented 13 honorees with its Education Partner award before a cheering crowd at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
A strategic education partner with school districts since 1967, Nassau BOCES created the awards program to honor those who share the agency's commitment to providing the best possible education to learners of all ages and abilities.

Proceeds from awards gala to fund educational innovation
