Today, York Central School Senior Connor Rodwell was presented with the Livingston County Sheriff's Office School Resource Deputy Student of the Year Award. York School Resource Deputy Becky Kane selected Connor for the award. Last year Connor organized a fundraiser that netted almost $60,000 which he donated to the Livingston County Suicide Prevention Task Force. "He is a leader on and off the basketball court. He has faced obstacles and demonstrated perseverance through difficulties. Connor is a positive role model for children, teens, and adults. He has a great work ethic, a sense of volunteerism, displays leadership and always has a positive attitude, and offers random acts of kindness," said Deputy Kane. Congratulations Connor on this well deserved recognition.

Senior Kyan Tiede presented his final project, one of the rigorous requirements needed to earn his New York State Seal of Biliteracy in Spanish. The NYSSB recognizes high school graduates who have achieved a high level of proficiency in English and at least one other world language. Attaining a NYSSB is desirable to employers and universities as it recognizes the student's value of diversity. Congratulations Kyan on this worthwhile achievement.

You may be looking at a future Pulitzer Prize winning author! Ms. Stewart's first graders authored their very own books about animals-and had them published into print! You can imagine their excitement when they were able to hold their very own book in their hands! We will be on the lookout for sequels!

How about these energetic early risers who are at school planting and tending to the raised bed vegetable and flower gardens in the courtyard. Mrs. Lippold and her Garden Club students also tend to the compost bin. They gave it a hearty "Golden Knights" turn this morning...which is basically like spinning the Wheel of Fortune!

It is with great pride that we announce the winner of the 2024 Lariton Award, Junior Liam Ezard. Middle/High School Principal Mrs. Peet presented the award at an assembly for all middle/high school students. "It is my honor today to present the Lariton Award this year to a student who embodies the qualities that made Anthony M. Lariton a part of our YCS history. During Mr. Lariton's 28-year career at YCS he held many jobs. His career began as a teacher, then as a school counselor, and until his death in 1975 he was York High School Principal. During these many years Mr. Lariton modeled the qualities that make this award York's most prestigious. This award in his memory looks for a person who shows outstanding citizenship as a member of the school community, who shows respect to fellow students and who is a person who understands the true value of an education. This person is also someone who has the knowledge that courtesy is the golden key which unlocks each door of life. As an outstanding member of their class, the award recipient mirrors the qualities of Anthony M. Lariton-Educator, Gentlemen and Friend. It is with great pleasure that I present the 2024 Lariton Award to Junior Liam Ezard," Mrs. Peet said.
