Fifteen senior physical education majors were recently honored by SUNY Cortland with Lenore K. Alway/Anthony P. Tesori Awards for their exceptional work in student teaching in New York state schools during the Spring 2013 semester.

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.
