Senior High School students Alexander Barrett, Tiffany Claud, Kendra Lynn Dunn and Michael Grosso were recently recognized by the Sgt. John Sardiello Post 1634 of the American Legion in West Babylon and the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary for their participation in the Empire Boys and Girls State program.

The Boys and Girls State program is a hands-on, weeklong educational workshop. Its goal is to help students develop leadership and public speaking skills while learning more about our government and the democratic process.

Alexander, who was eligible for a scholarship because his great-grandfather fought in World War II, won $1,000 from Samsung and is now a finalist for a $20,000 scholarship from Samsung/American Legion.
