This article announces the winner of the 2020 New York State School Boards Association’s President’s Award—our own Board Trustee Ed Nitkewicz! The article states: “The President’s Award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions toward the betterment of public education in New York State. Mr. Nitkewicz will be honored in a virtual presentation accessible from the dashboard of the 2020 Annual Convention & Education Expo, which will be held online in October.”
For those of us that know Ed, this award comes as no surprise—the article speaks to his strengths, however, Ed’s deep passion for students is evident whenever he speaks at board meetings—and his behind the scenes work with community organizations that focus on helping children with Autism and other special needs is “the cornerstone of his heart and soul.”
Congratulations, Ed, on this well-deserved honor, and for doing all you do for our South Huntington learning family.
