LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring James Mumma upon the occasion of his
designation as a recipient of the Distinguished Teacher Award by the
Harvard Club of Long Island

WHEREAS, Individuals who distinguish themselves in their profession and
in service to their community merit the highest commendation; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, this Legislative Body is justly
proud to honor James Mumma upon the occasion of his designation as a
recipient of the Distinguished Teacher Award by the Harvard Club of Long
Island; and
WHEREAS, James Mumma, who has taught within the Roslyn School District
for 18 years and currently teaches AP European History and Art and
Architecture I and II, is one of a dozen teachers across Long Island to
be honored each year with the award; he received his award at the
Harvard Club's annual University Relations Lunch on Sunday, April 7,
2013; and
WHEREAS, Dedicated teachers like James Mumma expend unfathomable
amounts of time and energy teaching Long Island teens, day after day and
year after year; their efforts inspire students to dream dreams, to work
to accomplish those dreams, and to think rigorously about what they want
their future to be; and
WHEREAS, This year's Distinguished Teacher Award winners were selected
by Harvard students as well as Harvard Club of Long Island members, and
teach history, math, English, science, music, and physical education;
and
WHEREAS, James Mumma has created a devoted student following for his
classes in AP European History and Art History because his knowledge and
content are unparalleled along with his connection to students; and
WHEREAS, A true asset to society, James Mumma's distinguished record
merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative Body;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor James Mumma upon the occasion of his designation as a recipient of
the Distinguished Teacher Award by the Harvard Club of Long Island; and
be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to James Mumma.
