Sixteen Babylon High School students accompanied by family and consumer sciences teachers Ms. Lisa Brush and Ms. Jenna Cucci volunteered their time at Commack High School during the Special Olympics Spring Games North. The students were paired with athletes and provided companionship, guidance, and support to their team. The athletes participated in a variety of organized athletic events throughout the day. It was a special time for everyone involved and several of the students formed memorable bonds with the athletes they worked with. This field trip experience was organized through the Babylon Leo Club, part of Lion’s Club International, which Ms. Brush and Ms. Cucci advise. We extend our thanks to the Babylon Lions Club for generously providing transportation and giving Babylon high school students the opportunity to be a part of this inspirational day As noted on the Special Olympics website
