MILLER PLACE, NEW YORK (NOVEMBER 2021) — This year, the Miller Place High School National Honor Society (NHS) Chapter selected Mr. Beyersdorfer, aka Mr. B., as its honorary member for his commitment to teaching and helping his students with their education and application processes. Mr. B. has been teaching at Miller Place High School for 22 years. He is currently a Global History teacher for 9th and 10th grade students, and strives to help his students learn, grow, and meet their full potential.

According to his students, Mr. B. takes time out of his day to meet with students, offer extra help sessions, and write letters of recommendation for college bound seniors. His students say he frequently checks in with past students in the hallways to see how they are doing and asks about future college or career plans.

In addition to being a teacher, Mr. B. is involved in extracurricular activities at Miller Place High School. He is the coach of the varsity badminton team, as well as keeper of the scorebook at basketball games. Mr. B’s commitment to Miller Place High School and his students is demonstrated through his numerous extracurricular activities and commitment to help all students who pass through his classroom.

Honorary NHS membership grants to the recipient all of the privileges of membership without the obligations associated with active member status. Honorary membership can be awarded to school officials, principals, teachers, NHS advisers, or other adults in recognition of achievement and/or outstanding service rendered to the school in keeping with the purposes of the National Honor Society.
