Recognition of Excellence

Shortly before the seniors became the latest alumni of the Bayport-Blue Point School District, the Board of Education and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Vincent Butera honored six outstanding members of the Class of 2015 for their achievements at the annual In Recognition of Excellence event.

These students were selected by a committee of teachers and administrators at the high school from a list of nominees summited by the entire faculty. Criteria for selection included: service to the school and community; respect for fellow students; strong moral character; academic achievement; commitment and appreciation of school ideals; participation in school activities; and one’s ability to express him/herself. The honorees in turn each selected three staff members – one representing each level of their schooling – who had a positive influence on their education.

The following students and staff members were honored at the ceremony.
