The June 5 Babylon School District Board of Education meeting was full of recognitions, spanning not only the students’ accomplishments, but the district staff as well.

To begin the nights’ recognitions, Babylon Junior Senior High School valedictorian Gabriella Albanese and salutatorian Ece Bapcum were commended by the Board of Education for their outstanding accomplishments spanning athletics, academics and extracurricular activities. Gabriella will be attending SUNY Stony Brook’s Honors College with a major in chemistry, while Ece will be attending Northeastern University with a major in molecular biology. 

The members of Babylon Memorial Grade School’s Mock Trial Team were also recognized by the Board of Education for their successful participation in the Western Suffolk BOCES Mock Trial Tournament. After intense trials and outstanding performances, both the plaintiff team and defense team were victorious; each winning their cases and also winning for overall presentation and style.

Babylon Junior-Senior High School math teacher Frank Mancuso was presented with a token of appreciation for being recognized by Sen. Phil Boyle as a “Teacher of Excellence” at his second annual Teacher of Excellence Awards Ceremony recently held at the Bay Shore Fire Department. Mr. Mancuso has been a part of the Babylon School District for eight years, and is highly regarded by students and staff alike. 

Additionally, eight staff members throughout the district were granted with tenure and celebrated by the community for their commitment to education. The district congratulates Kerrin Brennan, Cecila Galbraith, Erin Kennedy, Lindsay Laurich, Deirdre McIntee, Patricia Ryder, Marissa Scholl and Danielle Weis.
