Local students honored at Dellecave Awards

Several students from Southeast Brookhaven were recently honored at the 17th Annual Butch Dellecave Awards held on June 11, 2017, at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook.

Named in memory of the legendary educator, official, and coach Gaetano “Butch” Dellecave, the award is the product of a highly successful 17-year partnership between local school districts in Suffolk County and the award organizers: the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, the Butch Dellecave Foundation, and Newsday.

Athletic Directors from all sixty-six Suffolk County school districts are asked to nominate one male and one female from their high school senior class. Nominees must be students who are not only at the top of their game but also score high in classroom performance and in their commitment to the local community service.
