Glen Cove High School senior Heather Artinian is the winner of the Nassau County Sports Commission’s Eva Tucci Award, which recognizes a female student-athlete who demonstrates great character, great passion for sports, and is committed to academic excellence.
Born deaf, Heather was raised in a household where her entire family was also deaf. Despite having this common bond with her family, as a fourth-grader she underwent surgery that would allow her to hear and attend a non-deaf school. This decision created controversy so intense that it was documented in an Academy Award-nominated movie.
