Four exceptional East Islip High School students – Isabella Carlozzi, Hailee Cornell, Emma Jakits and Joshua Vasquez – were recently selected to exhibit in the Town of Babylon’s annual All-County SCALA/BACCA Art Show Exhibition. Cornell earned second place in the senior Scholarship category and received $500, and Jakits earned All-County first place in the photography category. The award ceremony was attended by Cornell and her mother, and Town of Babylon Councilmen DuWayne Gregory and Terry McSweeney were on hand to honor the artists.

“It was such an honor to participate in the SCALA show and an even greater honor to represent East Islip High School,” Cornell said.

“It was great seeing the students of East Islip being recognized for their talents,” said teacher Joy Taylor. “We are all very proud of them.”

“Our East Islip participants submitted amazing artwork and SCALA provides such a great opportunity,” said teacher Heather Toomey. “The ceremony was beautiful and the artwork from across the county was incredible to see.”

“The photorealistic artworks Hailee Cornell created deserved recognition as they demonstrate her ability to master any material in the arts,” said teacher Daniel Figliozzi. “I am excited to watch her continue to grow as an artist post-high school and I am proud of her for this accomplishment.”
