Two Graduations in one day. Congrats! @marco_zepeda_ @marielizee #IEYMS #NRHS

Congratulations to my firstborn Nas!!!! I’m so proud of you ❤️ where did time go?!!

I got a little teary eyed today when you were handed your diploma. Suddenly a flash of memories flooded my mind. I started to see you at all the different stages of your life up until now, all of those days seeming not too long ago, and here we are...we are at the final stretch. You’re going to high school!!! I know sometimes I’m hard on you, but I hope you know it’s because I want you to be everything the world thinks you can’t grow up to be. Beat the odds, break the sterotypes and shine BRIGHT. I love you to the moon and back ❤️❤️❤️ #classof2020 #mylittlesonshine #congrats #IEYMS #newrochelle

2019 Gala Honoree Haina Just-Michael
Community Leader Distinguished Citizenship Award.

Haina Just-Michael and her husband, Bernard Michael moved to New Rochelle in 1992, and they proudly raised their three daughters here. Last year, after their youngest child graduated from college, she and her husband moved to Manhattan. But her heart remains here in New Rochelle.
Haina is the president of the Just Media Group, Inc., a media company she founded in 1990. Haina and her family all proudly consider themselves part of the fabric of New Rochelle. They have all volunteered for many causes in New Rochelle, including: Meals on Wheels, HOPE Community Kitchen, Boys and Girls Club of New Rochelle, Westchester Day School, Volunteer New York, New Rochelle Parks and Recreation, New Rochelle Jewish Coalition, the Interreligious Council of New Rochelle, NR Future, the League of Women Voters (for whom Haina hosted a cable TV show for several years) and New Rochelle’s 325th anniversary celebration. Haina’s husband Bernard served as chairman of the New Rochelle Industrial Development Authority.
Haina’s passion has always been the New Rochelle Public Library. The library was one of her first stops as a new resident in 1992, and it turned Haina into a strong advocate and leader for the library. She served on the Library Board of Trustees, including as Board President. She currently serves on the New Rochelle Public Library Foundation Board. For many years Haina has been the host of New Rochelle Public Library On The Air at WVOX Radio.
Haina has always believed in the power of education. The New Rochelle Fund For Excellence and its mission blends her belief in the importance of first rate public education and her passion for ensuring that New Rochelle continues to provide the best education for future generations. #nrfund #distinguishedcitizenshipaward #newrochelle #westchester #justmediagroup #nrhs #alms #ieyms #barnard #columbus #webster #ward #jefferson #trinity #newrochelleforeducationalexcellwnce #hainajustmichael

The NRFund will award Jordan Forrest with the Eric Tutera Sports Leadership Award at the annual Gala on April 4th held at the Surf Club of New Rochelle.


Jordan is Co-Captain of the high school football team where he participates as both a running back and a linebacker. As a junior, he was named to the All-League and All-Conference Teams and was All-League as a sophomore as well. In addition to his achievements on the football field, Jordan is a member of the high school track team. As a sophomore, he was the Section
One Champion in the shot put in both indoor and outdoor seasons as well as the Section One Champion in the discus in the outdoor season. Forrest, a key player in taking the NRHS Varsity Football Huguenots to the state championship game in Syracuse last November, was named Player of the Year in Class AA by the New York State Sportswriters Association, among other honors. Even though he is one of the most gifted players on NRHS Varsity Football Team as well as the Varsity Track and Field Team, he is also among the most dedicated, focused, and hardest working. Using astuteness, intelligence and work ethic, he has elevated himself to the top of his class. He is admired, without exception, by teammates, coaches, opponents, and officials. He routinely places the goals of the team ahead of those of himself.
