Students Earn History Awards
The Percivil award, going to a high school senior who has shown Excellence in History, was awarded on Ole Times Day. This year the Society will be awarding two equally deserving high school seniors. Our recipients are Raymond Schein and Anthony Torres. Each scholarship is $500.00.
In addition to sponsoring this scholarship, the Historical Society reaches out to Babylon’s elementary-aged school children through a unique local history program offered at the museum (117 W. Main St.). Designed for fourth graders, this educational series teaches youngsters about Babylon’s beginnings from the time of the Indians, through its farming and milling days, to its heyday as a resort community.
