The Twelfth Annual Patchogue-Medford Congress of Teachers Student Citizen Awards were held on April 29, 2008 at 7pm in the Saxton Middle School Auditorium. The purpose of these awards is to recognize and honor those outstanding students who exemplify all of the qualities that teachers value most: responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, leadership and effort. These students not only excel academically, but shine as human beings. After the presentation of Colors by the PMHS Air Force JROTC color guard, PMCT member and chairperson of the event, Kathleen Murphy, helped present the awards along with PMCT president Paul Pecorale. PMCT members, Christy Reinert and Carrie Pickford, performed the song “Defying Gravity. The PMHS Jazz Band directed by PMHS band director, Peter Randazzo, also provided instrumental music during the ceremonies.

There were over 150 volunteer members of the PMCT that worked hard to put together the awards ceremony and enable the membership to honor and recognize these fine students for their academic successes and their achievements as well rounded members of the Pat-Med Community

Below is a list of all the elementary and secondary Student Citizenship Award Winners. Congratulations to all.
