Five Physical Education Student Teachers Commended

06/28/2016 

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 2016 semester.

Physical Education Department faculty members selected two men and three 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 honorees and the schools where they completed their teaching for spring 2016 are:

  • Michael Schoonmaker of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., at Sargent Elementary School in the Beacon City Schools and Cornwall Central High School.
  • Joseph Klonowski of East Northport, N.Y., at Elwood John H. Glenn High School and Southeast Elementary School in the Brentwood Union Free School District.

The Alway Award honorees and the schools where they completed their teaching for spring 2016 are:

  • Alyssa Gulino of North Babylon, N.Y., at Bayview Elementary School in the West Islip Union Free School District and the Robert Moses Middle School in the North Babylon School District.
  • Brynn Hlozansky of Johnstown, N.Y., at Broadalbin-Perth Intermediate School and Saratoga Springs High School.
