The district is proud to announce that East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School senior Chris Levins has been named the recipient of the News12 Scholar Athlete Award, after being nominated by basketball coach Paul Collins.

Each week, News12 honors a senior athlete who has been successful in athletics, academics and other extracurricular activities inside and outside school. He is among 30 student-athletes from across Long Island being honored this year.

Chris is the captain of the soccer and basketball teams and has earned All-Conference honors in both sports. In addition to his athletic career, he is also the trumpet section leader for the high school band and a member of the school’s construction club. Outside school, Chris is a member of the Nassau County Athletic Leadership Committee and recently became an Eagle Scout for the Scouts BSA Troop 121 in East Rockaway.

As part of this recognition, Chris will receive a $1,000 scholarship and will attend a luncheon in June honoring all the 2018-2019 recipients.

The district congratulates Chris on this tremendous honor.
