Class of 2016 Winners!

Thank you all for the continued support!

Our scholarship night speech- congratulations to our two recipients!

Good evening. My name is Pietrina Dalba, and myself along with his wife, Kelly Pizzurro and longtime friend, Jacqui Pollio, are here to present the fourth annual Joseph Pizzurro Memorial Scholarship to two of North Babylon’s 2016 graduating seniors. My brother was an amazing artist, excelling in drawing, painting, and web design. After graduating high school in 2002, Joe went on to become a successful graphic designer as well as a partner in a thriving graphic design business. Art was his life and it encompassed who he was as a person. This year’s scholarship is also in memory of our dear friend, Raymond Mazzilli, who recently passed away. Ray was a very talented artist and graduated from N.B.H.S. in 2002 as well. Amongst other applicants, the recipients of this scholarship were selected in that they possessed many of the artistic qualities Joe had. We wish them the best of luck as they begin their college careers in the art field in the fall. We are pleased to announce that this year’s Joseph Pizzurro Memorial Scholarship goes to Ruth M and Tan D.
