Locust Valley High School was recently honored for being named a New York State Scholar-Athlete Team School of Distinction. This prestigious honor means that every one of the high school’s varsity athletic teams earned scholar-athlete status, achieving a grade point average of 90 or higher during the 2013-2014 school year. Nina Van Erk, executive director of interscholastic athletics for Nassau BOCES, attended the Board of Education meeting to present the award to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Anna F. Hunderfund, High School Principal Dr. Kieran McGuire and Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Mark J. Dantuono. A ceremony was also held at Nassau BOCES. 

“It is a true honor to be recognized as a School of Distinction,” said Dr. McGuire. “Our student-athletes excel both on and off the field. They make the effort to prioritize both being a member of a team and being a member of an academic program. We couldn't be prouder.”  

Locust Valley is one of only seven high schools in Nassau County to earn School of Distinction status for the 2013-2014 school year.  

Congratulations to all the athletes, along with the coaches and teachers who supported them!
