The 41st annual Teachers Association of Lindenhurst awards ceremony was held on May 15 at Lindenhurst High School. Teachers selected one student from each grade level in every school for recognition. Nominees were selected based upon their levels of responsibility, leadership and citizenship as well as their enthusiasm for education and the academic efforts.

The audience enjoyed a performance by the Lindenhurst performing group Odyssey and then watched a video in which Lindenhurst students shared the ways in which they could “aid the world.” Students then thanked the aides of their school buildings as the Lindenhurst aides were this year’s recipients of ‘The Friends of Education Award,” for their outstanding contributions to the students of the district.

The Geraldine Cuneo Scholarship was awarded to Anna Kurianowicz; the Teachers’ Association of Lindenhurst Scholarship was bestowed upon Elizabeth Mackey; the Joseph Pozowicz Scholarship was given to Andrea Cabrera; and the John Cannestraro Scholarship was awarded to Matthew Byrne.
