High School student Sage Chasen is the recipient of the Mayor E. Donald Conroy Scholarship totaling $10,000 for his community service and scholastic record. He will be honored at the awards dinner, being held at the Venetian Yacht Club on June 3.

The goal of the Mayor E. Donald Conroy Scholarship is to recognize and award high school seniors and Babylon Village residents, who have demonstrated service to the community in the unselfish way exemplified by the former mayor. After service in World War II, Conroy returned to Babylon to serve as a police officer, volunteer fire fighter and as chief of the Babylon Fire Department. He comforted the sick in hospitals, raised funds for hospice and volunteered his time to a myriad of community events and activities. His vision was to make Babylon a wonderful place to reside. During his tenure as mayor, Conroy expanded the Village pool, revitalized the train station, and erected the Sept. 11 Memorial Garden, to name a few projects. 

Sage utilizes his passion for music to improve the environment and the lives of the elderly. Through his a cappella group, a cappella Performers Opposing Pollution, Sage performs and spreads the message to reduce human footprints on the world by decreasing pollution. He also uses his instrumental skills through his organization, Piano for Patients, playing piano for residents in local nursing homes. 

Sage will be attending LeHigh University this fall, where he will pursue his studies in engineering and music production.The West Babylon School District congratulates Sage on this outstanding accomplishment.
