Dedication To Physical Fitness In And Out Of School

Aiden Gasbarro and Dani Weissman, seniors at Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School, were honored in early December at the 2023 Nassau Zone Physical Education Awards. Aiden and Dani were recognized for their dedication to physical education and how they use it to better their lives. The award ceremony was held at The Inn in New Hyde Park.

Nassau Zone comprises public school officials from across the county. The organization supports and provides guidance for developing and holding school programs in health, physical education, recreation and dance. The annual awards ceremony honors students who commit to an active lifestyle in and out of school, exhibit positive social behavior, and possess strong leadership skills. The students must also have achieved a high level of fitness on approved fitness tests.

“Aiden and Dani exemplify exceptional physical performance, scholastic ability and leadership qualities,” said Plainview-Old Bethpage Athletic Director Joseph Braico. “We hope they continue to make physical fitness a core part of their lives and enjoy its wide-ranging benefits well into college and their adult lives.”
