NEW BRITAIN - New Britain High School has its scholar athletes for this year.
Gabby Roy and Nicholas Makuch, seniors at New Britain, have been selected to receive the Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS) Scholar-Athlete Award.
Each year, the scholar-athlete program annually recognizes two high school seniors - one boy and one girl - from each high school whose academic and athletic careers have been exemplary, whose personal standards and achievements are a model to others and those who possess high levels of integrity, self-discipline and courage.
The Annual Connecticut High School Scholar-Athlete Awards program and banquet has honored more than 4,000 outstanding graduating seniors in Connecticut high schools since its inception and has become one of the premier annual events in Connecticut’s education community. It is often looked forward to by the member high schools of Connecticut as the opportunity to recognize student excellence in academics, athletics and school and community leadership. In excess of 1,600 people attend the banquet each year.
The Scholar-Athlete awards banquet is held at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington each May.
