Elmont’s Gregg Petrocelli Classic

On Dec. 9, Elmont Memorial High School hosted the annual Nassau vs. Suffolk Gregg Petrocelli Classic. Gregg was a guidance counselor and basketball coach at Elmont Memorial. He was a role model and a positive influence on the entire Elmont school community. A quote he frequently used, "tough times don't last, tough people do" inspired many students to persevere and achieve their goals.
