In September 2001 the school opened to 250 students at a temporary site at LaGuardia Community College. Also honored was 17-year-old Jonathan Grassi, a Boy Scout who chose organ donations as his Eagle Scout project last year. Also singled out was Sean, the police dog credited with rescuing a rape victim from her assailants in Flushing Meadows Corona Park last month. Sean received a huge bone.
