Babylon High School recently honored its exceptional Class of 2020 with a series of four graduation ceremonies. On June 26, all 135 members of the graduating class gathered on the school’s football field for a “Senior Farewell.” Wearing masks and separated by six feet in all directions, the seniors listened to a reflection by senior class president Madaline Graham, a greeting from principal Al Cirone, speeches by salutatorian Katherine Hannon and valedictorian Anna Romero Mejia, and a farewell address by math teacher Frank Mancuso, for whom the students had voted to speak. Due to Governor Cuomo’s 150-person capacity limit for graduations, only students were permitted to attend, but the event was live streamed so that proud families could watch from home.

On June 27, BHS held three diploma conferment ceremonies, during which the names of all graduates were announced. Each session included 45 students, each of whom were allowed two guests. Graduates left these ceremonies with their tassels on the left side of their caps and as official BHS alumni.

The Babylon Union Free School District congratulates the entire Class of 2020 on their achievements, as well as their perseverance during an unconventional end to their high school careers. The district wishes the graduates great success and fulfillment in the future and is confident that they will make positive contributions as they advance to the next chapter.
