HICKSVILLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — This weekend will mark a special high school homecoming for Billy Joel.
As CBS2’s Marc Liverman reported, the “Piano Man” will speak Saturday to this year’s graduating class at Hicksville High School — the school he was supposed to graduate from exactly 50 years ago.
“It’s a thrill,” Robin Zeller, a Hicksville High teacher. “It’s really wonderful. It’s a wonderful model for the children and it’s a wonderful example, and his pride in Hicksville is really heartfelt.”
“I think he gives us all a little inspiration to do great things like he did,” said Jared Costa, a senior.
