Below is an announcement from South Country School District, published in its entirety.
Bellport High School is proud to announce that Alexa Orsino is the recipient of the Long Island Scholar Artist award.
Each year the Long Island Scholar Artist program recognizes students who excel academically and in the areas of music, visual arts, dance, theater, or media arts.
The Long Island Arts Alliance and the members of the Educators’ Committee selected Alexa based on her Photography portfolio and her academic ranking.
Alexa is one of 20 Long Island students to receive this honor and will be featured in Newsday during the month of January.
A kickoff event to announce this year’s recipients was held in September and there will be a reception in May at the Tilles Center to honor all recipients and their families.
Please join us in recognizing Alexa for this prestigious award.
