DJ Goldmandirector of health, well-being, physical education and sports for Croton-Harmon Union Free School District, says of Jamie, “It has been a pleasure to be Jamie’s school counselor this school year. Jamie really defined what it means to be a student-athlete.

“She strives to do well on and off the field, and is committed to bettering herself and society. Her academic profile speaks for itself, but her contributions to helping athletes through her myriad initiatives in mental health speaks volumes about her character. I am thrilled to see her enter the next chapter of her life to continue her education and fill halls with her contagious laughter.

Goldman adds: “It was great getting to know Jamie last year in my role as Sporting Director. She approaches each practice day with the mindset of identifying and making improvements. She is a leader on the pitch who inspires her teammates to work to their full potential. I can’t wait to see how Jamie takes his lessons from Croton-Harmon in his next adventure. She will always be welcome in the Croton-Harmon sports program. Once a Tiger, always a Tiger!
