IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Eighteen Irvington High School students have been recognized by the school district for demonstrating empathy, the ability to understand and share others’ feelings.
For displaying this quality in an exceptional way, they were awarded a Core Value Award on Nov. 4 in the category of Empathy.
The award recipients were Kelli Beja, Sarah Boyle, Jagger Clark, Cleo Davidowitz, Alex Eccles, Anthony Giampaolo, Ryan Meng-Killeen, Nathaniel Moyer, Shivay Perekh, Rebekah Rosman, Ana Sandoval, Mackenzie Tatananni, Nora Toussey-Wyatt, Isabella Vendramin, Evan Weinstein, Jacob Wisnik, Sydney Wright, and Amanda Zeldes.
“These students were selected by faculty as community members who consistently show empathy for others and are empathetic in their viewpoints,”said Steve Corbet, Irvington High School assistant principal.
For the first time in district history, administrators began 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.
Throughout the school year, students will also receive recognition for Global and Community View, Perseverance, Imagination and Creativity, Collaboration, Leadership, Responsible Risk Taking, and Subject Excellence.
