Southampton educators, staff and volunteers earn SCOPE awards

Southampton School District educators, staff and volunteers were recognized with awards during SCOPE’s 23rd annual School District Awards Dinner on March 18, among whom was Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nicholas Dyno. 

During the event, Dr. Dyno and Marcus DaSilva, director of facilities, were presented with administrator awards, Board of Education member Jacqueline Robinson was presented with a community service award, and Elisa Bowen and Anthony Stevens earned support staff awards.

Dr. Dyno, who is set to retire in August, was recognized for his contributions to the district as superintendent since 2017 and as a principal at the high school prior to his appointment. He was noted for fostering a culture of collaboration, respect and continuous improvement within the district.

DaSilva, who has served in his position since 2018, earned his award for his leadership and expertise, especially during emergency situations and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Robinson has served on the Board of Education for the past seven years, three of which she served as president and one as vice president. She was honored for her unwavering dedication to enhancing the educational experience for all students. 

Bowen, who has been a member of the district’s clerical staff since 2021, was recognized for serving as a liaison to the Shinnecock Nation and going above and beyond her job description. Likewise, Stevens, a grounds supervisor for the district for the past 34 years, was honored for going the extra mile for student-athletes by ensuring that the fields and courts are ready to go every day.

“I am honored to have been recognized by SCOPE,” said Dr. Dyno. “And I extend my congratulations to our staff and volunteers who were also honored. They are well-deserving of their accolades and I thank them for their dedication to the district.”
