Patchogue-Medford High School names hall of fame inductees

Patchogue-Medford High School plans to induct eight people and two teams into its hall of fame.

Among the honorees are late actor Paul Regina, who appeared in television series such as “L.A. Law” and “Brothers,” and opera singer Christine Goerke, who has performed at the Metropolitan Opera, hall of fame organizers said.

The school’s first hall of fame class was inducted last year.

Other inductees this year include Army Staff Sgt. Keith Bishop; state shot put and discus champion Edward Ellis; cardiologist Dr. Debra Judelson; the 1997 varsity football team; and Patchogue Fire Department’s Forty Thieves racing drill teams from 1981 to 1984.

In addition to Regina, three other people will be honored posthumously: Michael Reilly of the U.S. Coast Guard, coach and athletic director Frank Provenzano, and teacher-theater director Bert Pollock.

Organizers also plan to bestow the Raider Courage Award to a 14-year-old high school student with cancer.

Honorees will be inducted during a ceremony on April 28 at Patchogue-Medford High School. Some inductees are expected to visit the school that day to mentor current students.
