Jack Giamo enjoyed four fabulous years at Huntington High School. A Blue Devil golf star, he didn’t let anything stand in his way, not even a serious injury he sustained that kept him off the course as a senior. The teenager is headed to Michigan State University to study in the Broad School of Business.
Mr. Giamo is a talented golfer, to be sure and he has been an outstanding captain of the Blue Devil team. An unfortunate mishap on the ski slopes prevented him from teeing off as a senior, but his leadership was still invaluable to the Huntington squad.
The teenager said his success stems from hard work and putting forth his best effort. He has gained strength from the support of his family, friends and teachers.
Mr. Giamo has been especially close of Blue Devil golf coach Michael Marinello, making frequent stops in the physical education teacher’s office each day. The new Huntington alum said his coach’s “support and mentorship have been instrumental” throughout the past four years.
An internship in the office of US. Representative Thomas Suozzi proved to be equal parts informative and enlightening. Volunteering with General Needs allowed Mr. Giamo to help veterans in need of food, clothing and other assorted basic necessities.
Six years with the Huntington High School golf team have produced unforgettable memories for Mr. Giamo. Who could blame him if from time to time his mind drifted off at Michigan State with visions of all those happy days on the links with his Blue Devil teammates and Coach Marinello?
“We sure are going to miss Jack, but he will always be an important part of the Huntington golf program,” Mr. Marinello said. “We are excited about his future and happy to see him moving on with a sense of purpose.”
