2023 George Farber Outstanding Student Award Honoree
Hearing Services | Great Neck UFSD
Jason is a self-motivated model student with a passion for success. Ever on a quest for knowledge, he challenges himself by taking accelerated and advanced-level courses, where he actively engages in critical thinking, initiates class discussions, and offers insightful ideas. His journey to expand his intellect and improve his higher-order thinking has already resulted in notable academic achievement, including a high honors ranking. Jason is an exceptional example of strength and perseverance. He actively participates in school sports and student government, and even launched his own tutoring service.
Jason has always advocated for the needs of the hearing impaired and has been more than willing to offer academic assistance to his fellow students who may be struggling. During the COVID lockdown, he and his brother organized free virtual tutoring services for other hearing-impaired students. Virtual Hearing Helpers offered homework help, as well as tutoring in math, science, social studies and English for students in grades 3-10. This is only one of several ways in which Jason uses his intelligence and drive to support others when they need it most.
