The Babylon School District would like to extend sincere congratulations toward Babylon Junior-Senior High School student Agnes Goldin for receiving a $5,000 scholarship through Distributive Education Clubs of America in partnership with Hilton based on a submitted application and excellent performances during DECA competitions. 

Agnes is one of only three students from New York State to receive a DECA scholarship this year, as DECA and its corporate partners awards more than $300,000 annually in scholarships to students across the nation.

Additionally, she is the first Babylon student to have ever received this prestigious award. She will be accepting her award at the International DECA Career Conference to be held in Orlando, Florida on April 30.

Agnes has been a member of DECA for four years, maintaining the role as and president for the past two years. She has been a voting delegate at the New York State DECA Career Conference for four years and was also on the nominations committee during her sophomore year. In addition, Agnes qualified for the International DECA Career conference for three of her four years at Babylon JSHS.

“I could not think of a worthier recipient for this award,” said Babylon Junior-Senior High School DECA adviser Claire Reilly.
