John DeTommaso, the superintendent of schools, was recently honored as a 2017 Nassau County Athletic Hall of Fame inductee.  

One of 13 people named this year, DeTommaso holds an impressive sports record.  

“He was All-American in lacrosse four times, won two national championships while attending Johns Hopkins University and participated in the World Games,” said Board President Janet Goller as she presented him with a certificate of achievement at the June 7 meeting. “He was also an All-State athlete for football in high school.”

There will be a formal induction ceremony in September. 
 
DeTommaso was nominated by Deputy Superintendent Dr. Mara Bollettieri and Craig Papach, the athletic director at John F. Kennedy High School.
