The district would like to congratulate 19 graduating seniors for being named summa cum laude students by achieving a grade point average above 96.5, including this year’s valedictorian Philip Tubiolo and salutatorian Olivia Ingrassia.
Throughout his career at Bayport-Blue Point High School, Philip was a member of the Science Olympiad team, and was deeply rooted in the music department – lending his musical talents as bassist in the jazz band and a cellist in both the chamber and pit orchestras. This fall, he will attend Stony Brook University, where he will be majoring in biomedical engineering within the school’s University Scholars Program. While at Stony Brook, Philip plans to seek out research opportunities in the medical field and become involved in university jazz band, orchestra, and the university martial arts clubs.

While at Bayport-Blue Point High School, Olivia was a member of the varsity tennis team and was an accomplished musician, garnishing All-State, All-National and All-Eastern orchestra honors. She will attend Fordham University with a major in political science following a pre-law track. As part of her extracurricular studies at Fordham, Olivia plans to get involved in the university orchestra, Fordham College Republicans organization, and hopes to write for the Fordham Political Review.
