Forever Young. Fred Meyer
Fred came to the Northport–East Northport district almost 50 years ago. He joined a young faculty which was dedicated to providing an exemplary education and understood that the philosophy of middle school was based on meeting the needs of students — challenging each student while providing a nurturing, progressive environment. Fred was always there for all students. Fred was always there for all teachers.
He was involved in every aspect of student life and was a true advocate for both students and teachers. Fred always treated everyone in a manner that was dignified, fair and clear. He truly treated everyone as he would have others treat him. Like other fine educators who have left too soon … Tom Anderson, Jim Bagley, Ed Newton and Bill Perilli…Fred will be missed, but not be forgotten.
