New Dad in the Spotlight is our recurring feature highlighting new dads who have joined the AoOL community in the past year.
This month we continue our New Dad in the Spotlight series with Neil Samoilis, a great new addition to our community. Neil's family pictured above includes wife Jennifer and girls Ella (Kindergarten) and Sophia (pre-K3).
Both Neil and Jennifer grew up locally, graduating from Fair Lawn High School in 2009. Neil went on to study philosophy and political science at Fordham. Never afraid of rolling up his sleeves, Neil began working in his family's business (River Road Hot Bagels in Fair Lawn) at age 14 and took full ownership in 2022. Congratulations!
When discussing the reasons they chose AoOL for the girls, Neil and Jen cite the warm and welcoming families they encountered. Neil also credits the commitment of AoOL to "not only prepare our children academically but reinforce the faith and moral values we instill in our home."
Neil and Jen look forward to building close relationships with fellow parents and faculty. The pair has already jumped in to help on many occasions, providing catering to a number of meetings and events.
Please welcome the Samoilis family and keep River Road Hot Bagels in mind. Delicious!
