Helping to make a positive impact in his community is something Earl L. Vandermeulen High School senior Max Okst does on a regular basis and being nominated and recognized with the Thomas Cutinella Foundation Service Award for his natural gifts is a significant achievement.

Okst was honored during a varsity football game halftime ceremony by the Long Island Radio Broadcasting’s Tour For 54, which honors local high school students with the award to help raise awareness for the Thomas Cutinella Foundation, named in memory of the athlete and working to inspire and share the fundamental beliefs and values that defined his life.

A well-rounded young man – a member of the varsity track team, the student representative to the Board of Education, involved in the drama club and the district’s Sources of Strength program, among other interests – Okst has a genuine concern for helping others and is pleased to help promote a lasting legacy for Cutinella.
