Remember Mr. Boyle
Remember with us...
Many have said: “Every student should have a teacher like Mr. Boyle.” Former students and colleagues of Richard Boyle have created what we feel is an appropriate memorial to this beloved teacher: a financial award to a special graduating senior from Schreiber High School in Port Washington, NY, the town where he taught generations of students in his 34 years of teaching.
The first Richard L. Boyle Memorial Award of $2,222 was presented June 10th, 2009 at the Schreiber Senior Awards Ceremony to Hanbeak Lee. Hanbeak was selected by the Math Department with assistance from the Guidance Department. He came to this country just a few years ago and has distinguished himself in many areas, including math, music, the arts, sports and student government. Congratulations, Hanbeak!
We now have a Remember Mr. Boyle page on Facebook. If you are a Facebook member, please search for the page and become a fan. We already have over 100 fans, many of whom have written touching reminiscences on the page.
Navigating this web site:
The Memorial page contains the description of the award and the selection criteria to be used by the school faculty to choose the recipient. We are proud to announce that the Award was officially approved by the Port Washington School Board at their December 16th, 2008 meeting. We have already received $3,708 in donations as of June 10th, 2009. We covered our first award, and are well on the way towards next year’s. All contributions greatly appreciated.
The Donate page contains details on how to support this very worthy cause. Anyone who treasures teaching should consider giving a donation to support the award. Please help spread the word. Feel free to copy the information and send it to other potential supporters.
