Jessica Peluso and Kevin Smith, seniors from East Islip High School, Caitlyn Herzing and Joseph Blackton, seniors from West Islip High School, Caroline Hobbes and Kwame Kwarteng, seniors from Bay Shore High School, Meghan White and Kyle Chase, seniors from St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School, Madison Micheletti and Mathew Hole-Lopez, seniors from Islip High School, and Omala Shania Dhanraj and Ryan Kwaku Antwi, seniors from Central Islip High School were recently honored at  the 22nd annual Butch Dellecave Awards held at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook.

Named in memory of the legendary educator, official, and coach Gaetano “Butch” Dellecave, the award is the product of a highly successful 22-year partnership between local school districts in Suffolk County and the award organizers: the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, the Butch Dellecave Foundation, and Newsday.

Athletic directors from all 66 Suffolk County school districts were asked to nominate one male and one female from their high school senior class. Nominees must be students who are not only at the top of their game, but also score high in classroom performance and in their commitment to local community service.
