Junior Recognized by Town of Babylon

High school junior Chris Gonzalez was the recent recipient of a Special Recognition Award from the Town of Babylon. Gonzalez received this high recognition for his service to the Department of Human Services as a 2014 Ujima Summer Minority Internship Program participant.

He was honored at the Town of Babylon’s 16th Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival, hosted by Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer and the Department of Human Services in Tanner Park in Copiague earlier this month. The festival featured a keynote address, recognition of Gonzalez and other honorees, cultural presentations, ethnic food sampling, vendors and music.

In addition, the Amityville Board of Education took a moment at its most recent board meeting to congratulate Gonzalez.
