IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Eleven Irvington High School students have been recognized by the Irvington Union Free School District for demonstrating global thinking and care for their community.
For displaying those qualities in an exceptional way, they were recently awarded a Core Value Award in the category of Global and Community View.
The award recipients were Alissa Abramson, Nina Bernstein, Madison Carelli, Gianna D'Arrigo, Daniel Gur, Francis Iaconetti, William Iaconetti, Elizabeth Nutig, Andres Picon, Brian Puff and Jared Topman.
“They are an impressive group of students who display a global view and community perspective in their classes through the clubs that they join, and in some cases lead, and through their social interactions with other students and staff,” Irvington High School Principal David Cohen said of the awardees.
For the first time in district history, administrators are giving out monthly Core Value Awards to students who exemplify the many character traits that have shaped the school community. The first Core Value Award in the category of Humor and Joy was given to 15 students in October.
Administrators awarded 18 students in November for displaying empathy. Throughout the rest of the school year, students will receive recognition for perseverance, imagination and creativity, collaboration, leadership, responsible risk-taking and subject excellence.
