In recognition of Memorial Day later this month, Sachem Central School District Board of Education trustee and Navy veteran, Michael J. Isernia, Esq., presented 29 copies of “The Wall” by Eve Bunting on behalf of the Military Business Resource Group, of UL Solutions. The donation was made to the district at the May 8 Board of Education meeting.

The book tells the story of a father and young son who visit the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. The story is told through the boy’s eyes as he and his father search to find the name of the grandfather he would never know. Along the way, the boy sees others paying respects in different ways to all those lost. The books will be distributed to the district’s 10 elementary and three middle school libraries. They will be used by educators to teach lessons about the importance of honoring the veterans that made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

Accepting the donation on behalf of the Sachem District are President of the Board of Education Mr. Robert Scavo, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Christopher J. Pellettieri, Ed.D., Deputy Superintendent Ms. Patti Trombetta, Director of Instructional Technology Mr. Jack Renda, Seneca Librarian Amelia Estevez-Creedon as well as fellow Board Members Meredith Volpe and Matthew Baumann.
