Kennedy senior Amanda Aronoff was recently named a recipient of the 2016 Nassau BOCES Education Partner Award. The Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District Board of Education recently presented her with an Award of Honor for this achievement at the April 6 meeting.
The award recognizes indiviudals and organizations that have had a measurable impact on public education in Nassau County.
Aronoff created a student-run, anti-bullying committee at Kennedy called N.I.C.E. (Nice is Always Cool).
“As founder and president of the group, Amanda planned and implemented fundraising activities to make the committee successful including an anti-bullying photo contest,” Board Vice President Janet Goller said as she recognized Aronoff at the meeting.
