P.E. Student Teachers Recognized

P.E. Student Teachers Recognized

07/12/2018 

Five senior physical education majors were recently honored by SUNY Cortland with the Lenore K. Alway and the Anthony P. Tesori Awards for their outstanding work during their student teaching placements in New York state schools throughout the Spring 2018 semester.

All the students have since graduated. Physical Education Department faculty members selected one man and four women for the recognition, and the students received certificates.

The men’s award honors the late Anthony P. Tesori, a 1939 graduate who earned the College’s C-Club Hall of Fame Award for his achievements before and after graduation and gave the College many years of leadership in athletics and administration. The Alway Award, given to women, pays tribute to the late Lenore K. Alway, the pioneer head of women’s physical education at the College from 1941 to 1965.

The Tesori Award honoree and the schools where he completed his teaching for spring 2018 are:

  • John Kaplan '18 of Bayport, N.Y., at Connetquot (N.Y.) High School and Northeast Elementary School in the Brentwood (N.Y.) Unified School District.

The Alway Award honorees and the schools where they completed their teaching for spring 2018 are:
