Six Students from Islip Earn Achievement Awards


Six outstanding high school students – Jeffrey Atlas, Samantha Guerra, Plabon Paul, Kyle Renwick, Tiffani Sabolchick and Angela Santaniello – were recently honored with Town of Islip Student Achievement Awards.

Teachers and administrators nominate students for this annual award in a number of categories, and write letters of recommendation for them. Atlas was nominated by Jason Franz in the athletics category, Guerra by Gina Seymour for service to people in need, Paul by Nicole Hall and Assistant Principal Lisa Ward for technology, Renwick by Lorraine Knoblauch for fine arts, Sabolchick by Robert Russell for social studies and Santaniello by Pina Prainito for secondary language (Italian).

The students received certificates at Islip Town Hall. Additionally, the Islip Retired Teachers Association awarded $25 to each winner, and the IRTA’s Diana Baranec and Marilyn Gutierrez visited the school to present the students with their checks.
