Amy Agnesini, Rocky Point School District’s director of health, physical education, intramurals and athletics, has been named Athletic Director of the Year by the Suffolk Athletic Directors Association. She was nominated and chosen for this award by fellow athletic directors in Suffolk County.

Ms. Agnesini was selected for this honor based on the outstanding contributions she has made over the years, namely her devotion to athletics through the New York State Athletic Administrators Association and her promotion of athletics in a positive manner.

“This award means so much to me,” said Ms. Agnesini. “I have always felt that professional involvement was very important, not just for me, but for the children I am responsible for. The committees I have served on throughout my career allow for a better understanding of what athletic participation should be about. It is so important to remember that while winning championships is great, the journey is what is most important. I am proud to be a Rocky Point Eagle and to have been nominated by my colleagues to receive this award. It is the cherry on the sundae of my career, as I will be retiring over the summer.”

Ms. Agnesini currently serves the New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s Section XI in a number of capacities. These include the Athletic Council, Eligibility Committee, Finance Committee, Modified Committee, Mixed Competition Committee, Sportsmanship Committee, Awards Committee and NYSPHSAA Cheerleading State Committee, as well as coordinator for Section XI Cheerleading.
     
Ms. Agnesini will receive the award during the NYSAAA conference in Saratoga this March. She has served as an athletic director for 18 years, six of which have been in Rocky Point.
