Hi, I am wondering if there is any information about the faculty at the GNNSHS. I am particularly looking for Gary Price, social studies teacher who taught the class in 1961. If you have any information, I would appreciate it.

Attention all SHPies

I am writing from the Science Honors Program at Columbia University. The Science Honors Program is an extracurricular Saturday morning program for high school students who have demonstrated exceptional talent in the fields of math and science. The program has been in existence since 1958, and enrolls high school students residing in the tri-state area. We are currently attempting to contact alumni from our program in order to learn about what they have accomplished in their current fields. Not surprisingly, a large number of our students attend or have attended the Great Neck public Schools. We would appreciate any assistance you can offer in providing current addresses/contact information for our list of alumni. We look forward to your reply. Thank you for your help, Michelle Eisenkraft

The formatting is a little off, because of the quick conversion from print to web, but we'll be fixing that.

My name is Meredith Crouch formerly Berg and I graduated from Great Neck North in 1991. My Yearbook unfortunately met an untimely demise while being shipped to me. I was wondering if you knew if the school kept any old copies that they would be willing to sell or if the publisher may still have additional copies or any other resources that may aid me in my search. I have already checked our and they just sold the only 1991 copy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
