· Christine Oliva, School Counselor, Excellence in Pupil Personnel Services: “I would like to express my gratitude to the Tuxedo Administration for this wonderful acknowledgment and honor. I've had the pleasure of working with Tuxedo students, staff, and families for the past 23 years and consider this, like many others, my home away from home.”
