Babylon High School Principal Al Cirone announced on Oct. 3 that Babylon seniors Delaney Cassidy, Kelly Corcoran and Christopher Fenton have been named Commended Students in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program.
    
To earn the Commended distinction, students had to place among the top five percent of the 1.5 million who entered the competition. Students entered the program by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, and a select group of approximately 34,000 across the nation were officially “commended.”   
    
A letter of commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation was presented by Mr. Cirone, Superintendent Richard Rozakis and Babylon High School guidance counselor Suzanne Murphy to the three talented Babylon seniors who qualified. “We are all so proud of our Commended Students,” Ms. Murphy said. “It is a great honor, and we look forward to hearing what colleges they plan to attend in the fall.”
