Principal's Award recipient Nick Bozsnyak with Principal Brenden Cusask at senior academic awards night
The teenager is this year’s recipient of the Principal’s Award. Mr. Bozsnyak was presented with the honor by Huntington Principal Brenden Cusack at this month’s senior academic awards ceremony in the high school auditorium.
“Over the last four years, I’ve had the pleasure and the challenge of selecting one student for the Principal’s Award,” Mr. Cusack said. “I say that it is a challenge, because each year I am tasked with the difficulty of looking at a truly great bunch of students and having to choose only one for this award. As you’ve already heard this evening, there are so many students who are so deserving of so many accolades. It is indeed a challenge to choose just one student for this honor.”
An affable young man who is willing to talk to anyone who cares to listen, Mr. Bozsnyak has made the most of his time in Huntington UFSD. He has flushed out his interests, broadened his knowledge and made many friends.
“In making my selection this year, one student came to mind,” Mr. Cusack said. “He is a humble, hardworking young man who has made many strides over his years at Huntington High School. He is quiet, but not without his own particular take on the world. He is as unassuming as they come and yet everyone seems to know him. He gets the job done without complaint and finds time to do extra as well. And most of all, he is a kind soul who has overcome challenges and who puts true effort into what he does, asking for nothing in return.”
Popular with his classmates, Mr. Bozsnyak often has a serious look on his face, but he melts away when a person approaches with a question. He enjoys a good discussion and socializing, too.
“I am proud to provide the Principal’s Award this year to a student who, if asked, probably would not even realize he would be considered for this award, which by the way, is accompanied by a $1,000 scholarship this year, generously provided by our new photography company, Irvin Simon,” Mr. Cusack said. “This young man is truly an unsung hero in my estimation.”
