Ten senior physical education majors were recently honored by SUNY Cortland with the Lenore K. Alway and the Anthony P. Tesori ’39 Awards for their outstanding work during their student teaching placements in New York state schools throughout the fall 2017 semester.

Physical Education Department faculty members selected five men and five 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.
