The Patriot Award is given to Seaford High School students who exemplify the spirit of patriotism and service embraced by five Seaford High School alumni who perished in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001. The alumni, Timmy Haskell, Tommy Haskell, John Perry, Robert Sliwak and Michael Wittenstein, are memorialized with five individual plaques on the Seaford High School 9/11 memorial which stands in permanent tribute at the front of the school.
