Recognizing Environmental Leaders in KIC Club


Members of the high school’s Keep Islip Clean Club were inducted as KIC junior commissioners on Oct. 13 in the organization’s annual ceremony held at Islip Town Hall. Supervisor Angie Carpenter and other Town of Islip officials attended the Oct. 13 event, which recognizes students from across Islip who demonstrate environmental leadership.

“I always get a great group of junior commissioners from Wayne Mennecke, the KIC Club adviser at Islip High School,” said Keep Islip Clean Executive Director Nancy Cochran. “I can count on his students to get fully involved and make a positive contribution to the community and environment, and look forward to another rewarding year of working with them.”

“We are very proud of our students who were selected to serve as junior commissioners for the 2015-2016 school year,” said Principal Michael Mosca. “These students always go above and beyond for the betterment of their school and community. As members of our Keep Islip Clean Club and leaders of their respective classes, we hope their commitment will encourage more young people to do their part to help keep our community and our environment clean.”
