Local seniors were recently honored at the 23rd Annual Butch Dellecave Awards held recently 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 23-year partnership between local school districts in Suffolk County and the award organizers: the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, Inc., the Butch Dellecave Foundation, and Newsday.
Athletic Directors from all sixty-six Suffolk County school districts were 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 athletic game, but also score high in classroom performance and in their commitment to local community service.
Bellport High School seniors Jason Hunt and Cadence Howard were honored.
Patchogue-Medford High School seniors Joshua Knoth and Kaitlyn Klepper were honored.
William Floyd High School seniors Dylan Harris and Kaitlyn Vlacich were recently honored. The William Floyd High School nominees were not present, thus there is no photo for them.
