The Extra Mile Award 2024

The Extra Mile Award was created in memory of our beloved teacher and friend, Mrs. Theresa Miceli-Mistretta. Mrs. Mistretta was a much loved and respected PS16 teacher and colleague. She was one of a kind and had a lasting impact on those who were fortunate enough to be her student. To honor the legacy of our Mrs. Mistretta, the CPA created this award in her memory.

The recipient of this award is a student who shows continuous effort in doing something above what is expected. They strive to do THEIR best through their studies, extracurriculars, and their interactions with their peers. They help create a positive environment within the classroom. This student has a great attitude and a determination to succeed. They treat others with respect and make everyone’s day a little better. Above all else they rise up and remove all excuses so they may focus on finishing strong. They never seek recognition and often shy away from the spotlight, but their efforts have not gone unnoticed.

The Extra Mile Award 2024 is awarded to Devan Alexander.
