At its Dec. 18 meeting, the West Hempstead Union Free School District’s Board of Education and administration honored seniors Isabella Caldwell and Ryell Walker for being selected as recipients of the Nassau Zone Outstanding Physical Education Students of the Year Award.

Sponsored by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, this award recognizes one male and one female Nassau County high school senior from each school district who exemplify outstanding scholastic ability, physical education performance and leadership qualities. Isabella and Ryan are this year’s West Hempstead honorees, and the district congratulates them on this tremendous honor.

The Board of Education meeting also included a performance from the West Hempstead High School chorus. The ensemble provided entertainment by singing holiday classics.
