Fifty Herricks High School ninth graders were recognized at the Guidance Department’s annual Personal Best Awards Breakfast held on May 25. The morning event took place in the school’s cafeteria and invited guests included family members, teachers, staff and administration. These students have been nominated by their teachers as positive contributors to the classroom.
The Personal Best Awards event was designed to recognize ninth grade students who have made a successful transition to Herricks High School, and while doing so, have put their best foot forward and made a positive impact on those around them.
The honored students were nominated because they are respectful, compassionate, responsible, highly motivated, empathetic, and have become role model for their peers.
Herricks Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tony Sinanis shared, “This is a wonderful and meaningful event that not only celebrates the character of our students but deepened the community connection by including our families in the celebration.” He continued, “When I think about our Portrait of a Graduate, this event, and what it celebrates, is the perfect example of the six C’s which are collaboration, communication, confidence, compassion, creative innovation and critical thinking.”
