During the July 11 Board of Education reorganization meeting, the district honored and paid tribute to a highly-dedicated member of the Connetquot community, Lorraine Adamec Mays, and presented her with an honorary high school diploma. 

A lifelong Bohemia resident, Mrs. Mays attended the original school house building, and graduated eighth grade under the principal of the time, Mr. John Pearl. Being that Oakdale and Bohemia residents attended Sayville High School at that time, she completed three and a half years at SHS and decided to pursue other interests at the Wilfred Academy School in New York City toward a cosmetology career.
Additionally, Mrs. Mays currently serves on the Bohemia Historical Society Board of Directors, and is considered an authority on local history, as she is featured in multiple videos at the Connetquot Public Library about the founding of Bohemia.
