The district is pleased to announce that Harborfields High School seniors Mason Mee and Kailey Broderick were presented with the 2016 Suffolk Zone Physical Education Award on Dec. 7. The Suffolk Zone is the local chapter of the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

The annual Suffolk Zone award is Suffolk County’s highest award in Physical Education. Students must possess an “A” average in physical education achievement, be scholastically sound, exhibit leadership skills and qualities in a physical education setting and demonstrate overall leadership in school-wide activities. Most importantly, students nominated for this honor must be outstanding role models within the community and to their peers.

“The students were nominated by their high school physical education teachers for showcasing exemplary leadership, character and enthusiasm in the high school physical education program,” said Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics John Valente.

In attendance for the special recognition ceremony were the parents of the seniors, Valente and high school physical education teachers Suzanne Legge and Stefan Serie.
