The District, in cooperation with Dowling College and Farmingdale State College, celebrated Long Island's best creative young artists at the second annual Babylon Art Festival on the weekend of June 1 at Old Babylon Town Hall.
Babylon High School students Alliston Buser, Taylor Middleton, Gabrielle Simone, Melissa Tolve, Amanda Crowley, Brendan Laing, Nicole Smith and Mabel Ye, along with over a dozen Dowling College and Farmingdale State College art students, each earned 2012 Awards of Excellence for their superb art exhibits.
"We would like to extend a special thank you to Theresa M. Santmann," said Babylon School District Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. Peter R. Daly. "This event would not have been possible without her love of the arts and support for our community. Our thanks also to the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts (BACCA) for their support in hosting the event."
