Senator Carl L. Marcellino came to Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf on Oct. 24, 2018, to visit the Deaf Education Center students. Marcellino, who was a force behind the "Mill Neck Student Support" grant that was passed, toured the school and received a thank you card from the students. The funds from this student-focused grant will be used to improve security measures, student safety, upgrade technology, purchase a van to transport students who live too far to attend extracurricular activities and more.
"Senator Marcellino played an integral part in getting this grant approved," said Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf Superintendent Fran Bogdanoff. "This grant will allow us to greatly enhance our program touching the lives of each of our students. We are so grateful to Senator Marcellino and all who helped this come to fruition."
The Mill Neck Family of Organizations thanks Senator Marcellino for his dedicated support of our vision to create a world where Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals are included, empowered, celebrated and embraced as equals.
