Leading the Way

Bayport-Blue Point High School senior Jason Giunta is being awarded the Principal’s Leadership Award from the Suffolk County High School Principals Association.

Jason, who was nominated for this honor by high school principal Dr. Gaurav Passi, is considered a standout leader both at the school and within the community. This year, he volunteered to represent the student body on the Board of Education and is a student representative on the district’s technology committee.

The dedicated leader is also a highly committed student, who has pushed himself with a challenging course load and was named an Advanced Placement Scholar with Honor by the College Board earlier this year. He is also a member of the school’s track and cross-country teams.

Jason will be attending Binghamton University this fall.

The association received many submissions and only seven students across the county were presented with this distinction and the associated $1,000 scholarship.
