Farmingdale High School students Madison Outing and Heaven Diaz have each earned the Triple C Award, bestowed by the New York State Attorney General to students who have demonstrated the three C’s of Courage, Commitment, and Character.
The award states that it is given: In recognition of your strength of CHARACTER, which has helped you achieve your goals and will guide you in making the right decisions in the future; your COURAGE, which will assist you in meeting the challenges ahead; and your remarkable COMMITMENT to bettering yourself, your school, and your community, which makes you a role model to others.
Madison and Heaven were nominated by FHS Assistant Principal Jed Herman for their work on the creation of a new club (R.E.A.L. Harmony) and for their work on an inaugural multicultural showcase, designed to celebrate the diversity of the district and encourage cultural inclusion among the student body.
“We are very proud to recognize Madison and Heaven for their outstanding qualities and for their spirit and determination to succeed,” said Mr. Herman.
The certificates—signed by newly elected NYS Attorney General Letitia James— were presented to the young women by Superintendent Paul Defendini and Assistant Principal Jed Herman during an intimate ceremony with family members on April 29, 2019.
