The Long Beach Public School District is now accepting nominations for the 2023 Long Beach High School Wall of Fame. The Wall of Fame was established to honor present and former members of the Long Beach community who have made substantial contributions locally or to the world at large, including contributions in the area of athletics. In 1996, the Wall of Fame was dedicated by the Long Beach Booster Club in cooperation with Long Beach Public Schools to serve as an inspiration for the youth of Long Beach.

To nominate a candidate, nomination forms may be obtained at any Long Beach public school, the Long Beach Public Schools Administration Office, the Athletic Office at Long Beach High School, or downloaded by visiting the wall of fame page

Qualified candidates must have attended Long Beach High School for at least two full years, or in lieu of such attendance, must have been associated with the Long Beach community for a period of no less than 10 years.

Completed forms and all other supporting information should be mailed or hand- delivered to the Office of the Superintendent, Long Beach Public Schools, 239 Lido Boulevard, Lido Beach, NY 11561-5093. Nominations for the 2023 induction into the LBHS Wall of Fame will be accepted through June 1, 2023.

Long Beach Students Get a Virtual Visit with Olympic Rower

Olympic rower Justin Best recently answered questions during a virtual visit with fifth graders at Lido Elementary School. The rower will be representing the United States in the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics following his first Olympic experience in Tokyo 2020.

The nearly 40-minute conversation with the Olympian was an interview conducted by Lido fifth grader Thomas Gregory as part of a school project.

In a live Google Meet, Mr. Best answered Thomas’ well-researched questions with the diligence and perseverance of a world-class athlete. The Long Beach students were most fascinated by the attention to nutrition, the expansive workout facilities with mountain views. Mr. Best shared, “High altitude training increases endurance and sports performance.” Just before their visit, Best finished a 90-minute workout on the erg, a rowing machine. He explained, “Since there is no place to row in the mountains, they must use erg machines.”

The biggest lesson learned, said Best, “If you believe in yourself, work hard, eat healthy, listen to your parents, it was their idea he pursues crew, and persevere, you might become an Olympian or at the very least, you might become your best self.”

Following the student-to-athlete interview, Justin Best met with other fifth grade classes throughout the district and gave a virtual tour of the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado and then answered their questions.
