This summer the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) released the 2017-18 Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction winners, and Elwood-John H. Glenn High School was selected along with nine other Suffolk County schools! This is the second year in a row the high school has received this distinction.

In order to be granted this award by the NYSPHSAA, each of the high school’s varsity teams must have earned a “Scholar-Athlete” title that year, which requires 75% of the team’s GPA to have an average of 90.00 or greater.

“Our student-athletes’ dedication to academic success in the classroom has carried over into their athletic success,” said David Shanahan, director of athletics and physical education, “and we are so proud of all the hard work they put into achieving excellence daily.”
