Recognizing a War Hero

History was really brought to life for a social studies project at the middle school thanks to Ray Vaz, the father of Caryl Salesi. Our students created a full 20-minute video interview on his experiences in the war and presented him with a Certificate of Recognition in honor of the many hours he spends each year speaking with our social studies classes. More than 20 years ago, the district presented him with an honorary diploma, as he enlisted in the Army before actually graduating from the school. He’s a great man, with a great family and we are proud to have him as a member of our Mineola family.Vaz
