The high school’s Varsity Club was recognized at a recent Board of Education meeting for its volunteer efforts for the League of Yes, an organization that creates baseball programs for people with disabilities.

Cheri Fox, Suffolk County field director and executive board member for League of Yes, commended the students on their efforts in not only volunteering their time, but in developing friendships with the players on the league as they were each presented with a certificate. The school also received a “Buddy of the Year” plaque for its commitment to the organization.

The Varsity Club members and their advisers, teachers Jesse Rosen and Deirdre Filippi, engage in projects centered around athletics and also run school-organized events, including volleyball tournaments and the schoolwide Olympic games, activities that help to raise money for various service-minded organizations. These activities help to establish a sense of community within the high school building and teach club members that they can positively help and influence people around them while challenging themselves in the process.

Congratulations to all the Varsity Club members:
