Seniors Jessica Grisales and Billy Miatta from Lynbrook High School were recently recognized as recipients of the Nassau Zone Outstanding Physical Education Students Award. The students were commended during an award ceremony at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
Sponsored by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, this award is presented to one male and one female Nassau County high school senior from each school district who exemplify outstanding scholastic ability, physical education performance and leadership qualities.
Both students are a valuable member of the Lynbrook High School family and have made lasting impressions on their peers and teachers. Jessica’s physical education teacher Mike Dieguez noted that she is a pleasant addition to his strength training class.
“She has done a nice job of formulating her own plan that has included hard and efficient work on the most demanding, yet result producing exercises,” he said. “She asks insightful questions in her desire to improve herself and has been an excellent role model for others in the class.”
Billy also received praises from his physical education teacher Brian Hetrick, who acknowledged him as a motivated young man.
“Billy Miatta has displayed a great deal of responsibility throughout his high school physical education career here at Lynbrook High School,” he said. “He has constantly demonstrated good sportsmanship and character, and is well respected by his peers and teachers. The genuine love for being active, as well as his positive outlook on class and life are qualities that very few students possess.”
Congratulations to both students on this great achievement!
