IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Eleven Irvington High School students have been recognized by the Irvington Union Free School District for demonstrating perseverance in their classrooms and extracurricular activities.
For displaying those qualities in an exceptional way, they were awarded a Core Value Award in the category of Perseverance.
The award recipients are Daniel Abarca, Taylor Child, Aine Daly, Madeline Green, Luke Hargraves, Nia Lee, David Markowitz, Kumani McLean, Swati Narayan, Brennan Benzant Ortiz and Julia Weber.
“Perseverance in high school is about the ability to be consistent in one’s practice toward success and to maintain the grit and determination to meet various challenges,” said Irvington High School Assistant Principal said.
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. Eighteen students were recognized in November for demonstrating the ability to understand and share others’ feelings.
Administrators awarded 11 students in December for displaying global thinking and care for their community. Throughout the rest of the school year, students will receive recognition for imagination and creativity, collaboration, leadership, responsible risk-taking and subject excellence.
