Locust Valley High School Senior Jordan Dyer has earned the Section VIII 2018-2019 National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association Scholarship.  

The NIAAA scholarship program recognizes distinguished scholastic leadership and sportsmanship attributes of high school student-athletes and the importance of high school athletics in each student’s life. Recipients must be seniors in high school, have achieved high academic accolades, have participated in two sports for at least two years each and have earned at least one varsity letter in each of two sports.
Finally, applicants must complete an essay on how high school athletics have impacted their lives.

Jordan was among 50 applicants for the scholarship and was chosen by a committee of Nassau County athletic administrators. She will now move on to the state level of the scholarship competition.

Jordan has a grade point average of 97.84, was a two-year member of the varsity field hockey team and five-year member of the varsity golf team. She was named the Most Improved Player on the varsity golf team for two consecutive seasons and earned All-Conference accolades in the county tournament.

Jordan is a member of the high school robotics team, book club, chamber singers and the athletic council, and also finds time for outside activities, including coaching and volunteering for the Oak Neck Youth Field Hockey program. In addition, she volunteers her time with the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation, assisting with golf outings, the Tunnel to Towers 5K Race, the American Burn Congress and the Firefighters Ski Races. 

For all of these attributes, Jordan is extremely deserving of this recognition. Congratulations, Jordan!
