The Northport-East Northport Board of Education will be proud to recognize Northport High School senior Tage Oster as the Business Student of the Month at its meeting on June 4.
Tage was described by his teachers and high school soccer coach as an outstanding mentor, leader and role model, as well as an engaging public speaker.
For the past three years, Tage has been an active member of the school’s Academy of Finance Advisory Board and currently serves as the group’s president. Over the years, he has contributed to the AOF newsletter and spearheaded such events as the AOF volleyball fundraiser and food and gift fund drive for COVID-19 response.
“When a job needs to be done, we look to Tage,” Northport High School Assistant Principal and Business Education Chairperson Denise Keenan said.
Additionally, as a sophomore, Tage earned a spot on the school’s junior varsity soccer team and quickly worked his way up to varsity, where he served as the team’s captain during his senior year.
Tage was also a member of the school’s Business Honor Society and Distributive Education Club of America (DECA). He plans to continue his passion for business after graduation at Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management, where he plans to study management with a concentration in non-profit.
“There were a lot of avenues for me to explore that passion for business that I had. From getting so involved in these clubs, I was able to figure out what I wanted to do in the future,” Tage said. “It was just nice for me to have my high school have such an influence on what I want to do in the future.”
