Honoring Student Achievements


The Bayport-Blue Point School District paid tribute to many student-musicians and several budding young business students for their recent participation in regional and state festivals, respectively.

Bayport-Blue Point High School students Emily Larsson, Patrick Liu and Victoria Mercouris were honored for their participation in the New York State DECA Career Development Conference. DECA is an interscholastic business organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. During regional and state competitions, students demonstrate their knowledge of these subjects through written or oral contests.

Additionally, the Board honored student-musicians from throughout the school district who participated in this year’s Long Island String Festival Association concerts and SCMEA festivals. The students were selected for these regional honors based on their NYSSMA scores and teacher recommendations. Honorees included:
