‘Knight!’ Legislator Koslow Honors Knighted Calhoun HS Teacher for Humanitarian Work

Legislator Koslow - Sir Goldberg

(BELLMORE-MERRICK, N.Y.) – Prior to the Nassau County Legislature’s Monday, March 26 meeting, Nassau County Legislator Seth I. Koslow (D – Merrick) honored Sir David Russell Goldberg, a Sanford H. Calhoun High School social studies teacher whose knighting is attributable to his philanthropic deeds.

 With his family and school administration looking on, Sir Goldberg received a Nassau County Legislature Citation in honor of his knighting by the Parte Guelfa, a 13th-century Florentine order that is dedicated to the preservation of the world. His investiture ceremony included a march to the Basilica De Santa Croce, where Dante and Michaelangelo are buried. 

“For many years, David Goldberg has distinguished himself as a tireless advocate for peace, environmental protection and public education,” Legislator Koslow said. “Now that the honor of becoming Sir Goldberg has been bestowed upon him, I have every confidence that he will continue to excel in his role as a knight of the Parte Guelfa. It is my hope that his example will inspire others to pursue humanitarian causes in their own lives.”
