Bellport HS Junior Receives George Washington Book Award
Bellport High School junior Carly Diolosa is the recipient of the George Washington University Book Award. Presented by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Alumni Relations at the George Washington University, this prestigious award recognizes high school juniors nationwide who embody the university’s drive and spirit, demonstrated through academic excellence, community leadership, diversity of thought and the ability to put knowledge into action.   

Carly was nominated by school counselor Katelyn Burke and has received a gift of James C. Rees’ book “George Washington’s Leadership Lessons,” which details how the nation’s first president developed his leadership skills and became a visionary in developing this country. If Carly decides to apply to the university after high school graduation next spring, her application fee will be waived and she will be eligible for a scholarship gift for GW Book Award recipients.

Carly is a member of the Math and Science honor societies, as well as the National Honor Society. She is an Advanced Placement student and takes honors classes to round out her challenging academic schedule. While taking time out of her studies, Carly is a three-sport athlete on the school’s varsity soccer, winter track and lacrosse teams. As student council president, she also serves as Ex-Officio Board Member, serving as a liaison to the board of education for the 2018-2019 school year.

The South Country Central School District congratulates Carly for this outstanding academic accomplishment.
