The May 8 Babylon School District Board of Education meeting recognized multiple district students for their achievements, covering scholarly subjects including academics, athletics and the arts.

To begin the night’s recognitions, members of the Babylon Junior-Senior High School varsity cheerleading team were recognized for being named Suffolk County Champions for the second year in a row and for qualifying for the New York State Public High School Athletic Association State Championships for the second year running.

The varsity gymnastics team was honored for being named runners-up in this year’s Suffolk County Championships. Additionally, the team was recognized as an All-American Team by the National High School Gymnastics Association. Student-athletes Heather Falconer, Sarah Franklin, Kristen Murray and Alexandra Singleton were named Academic All-American athletes based not only on their superior athletic skills, but also for maintaining a GPA above 3.5.

Babylon School District art teachers Patricia Stork and Cheryl Schweider introduced their talented art students who recently returned from their trip to Saratoga Springs, New York for the 2017 Olympics of the Visual Arts. They were able to display their work to the Babylon community, which included a beautiful carousel Pegasus dress made entirely of paper materials and a “Tree of Life” sculpture based on the works of renowned artist Gustav Klimt.
