Due to their leadership, citizenship and outstanding achievement in physical education, Lynbrook High School seniors Gina Giovinco and Michael Schwartz were recently recognized as Nassau County Outstanding Physical Education students at the Nassau Zone of the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance’s annual High School Outstanding Student Awards Dinner.
Each year, Nassau Zone honors one graduating male and female from high schools throughout Nassau County who meet the required Physical Education Outstanding Student criteria for achievement. Both Giovinco and Schwartz were awarded with a medallion and certificate for their accomplishment.
In addition to being high achieving students, Giovinco is a member of the high school’s girls soccer and girls lacrosse teams, while Schwartz is a member of the boys track and field team. Both students are also heavily involved in the community with Giovinco volunteering in the local youth soccer program and Schwartz participating in the school’s Tri-M Honor Society and volunteering with the Little League Challenger Baseball Program, an adaptive baseball program for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges.
