Pair of Seniors Honored in At-Home Ceremonies as Top Graduating Athletes
WATERTOWN — Two Watertown High School seniors were honored Sunday afternoon as the top graduating athletes and recipients of the William I. Graf Award. Tiffany M. Russell was selected as the women’s recipient, and Ryan E. Peters was named as the men’s honoree this year.
The William I. Graf Award was created in 1954 by the Italian-American Civic Association to honor Mr. Graf’s leadership and civic engagement in the community. The Northern New York Community Foundation was selected to help continue the Graf family legacy by administering the fund in perpetuity and raising awareness of the award for students who strive to earn the prestigious honor.
