The Stimson Middle School sports recognition awards were held on Tuesday evening, and they had quite an all-star line-up. The program got started with a welcome message from Dr. James Wright, South Huntington’s Athletic Director, who introduced special guests, including incoming superintendent Dr. David Bennardo and Board of Education president Mr. Jim Kaden. Wildcat Booster Club president Ms. Donna Grennan acknowledged the hard work and commitment of the Booster Club's vice president Ms. Christine Dickson and reminded the audience of their Columbus Day Golf Outing on October 8, where they will honor Coach Dan Trebour.

Stimson principal Ms. Faye Robins spoke with the audience about the upcoming Olympic games, comparing her student athletes to Olympians. “As athletes of Stimson Middle School, you serve as our ambassadors, similar to the Olympic athletes, who represent their countries with pride," she said. "You are role models for our younger students. Like our Olympians, our Stimson athletes learn that healthy competition means working together to achieve a common goal. It also means keeping in good health, making healthful decisions, and maintaining a solid academic standing.”
