Lauded for Litter Removal


The Board of Education, teacher Jeanine Moran and six high school students – sophomores Erica Dinoff, Taylor Maucere, Courtney Morelli and Tamara Robinson, and juniors Papri Basu and Emily Zhang – were recently honored at the May 26 school board meeting for their participation in the Town of Babylon’s anti-litter campaign.

Babylon Town Board Councilman Thomas Donnelly, a Deer Park resident and the co-chairman of the town’s Beautification Committee, attended the meeting to laud and present awards to both the students involved and the school board.

The anti-litter campaign, a component of the Town of Babylon's Beautification Program, culminated in a day of cleaning roads and public spaces of litter in a celebration of community pride. The Deer Park volunteers, spearheaded by Board Vice President Donna Marie Elliot, were among the 200 who removed 12,290 pounds of garbage at the April 24 event.
