Seven Bellport High School musicians were selected to participate in the prestigious 2022 High School All-County Music Festival, sponsored by The Suffolk Chapter of the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education and the Suffolk Music Educators’ Association.

This year, Bellport had representatives in four performing groups, the All-County Treble Choir, Mixed Chorus, Symphonic Band and Symphony Orchestra. Over 14 hours of rehearsals culminated in a concert performance at Half Hollow Hills High School East on Friday, Nov. 18.

The students were selected based on their NYSSMA Solo Festival rating and nominations submitted by school music teachers last June. This festival recognizes Suffolk’s most accomplished high school music students in grades 11 and 12. 

The South Country Central School District extends its congratulations to the following musicians for a job well done.

“It comes as no surprise to me that our students see Mr. Finnegan as an outstanding, dedicated and committed educator,” said Principal Erika Della Rosa. “Just by spending a few minutes with him in the hallway, one can see how much he cares for all students.”

Bellport High School sophomore Sheriyah Ballard recently earned an Outstanding Job Performance Award from the Suffolk County Department of Labor for work she completed through the department’s Summer Youth Program. She was one of 700 participants and 250 nominees to earn the award.

“I was very surprised,” said the South Country student, who spent her summer working alongside South Country School District employees at Frank P. Long Intermediate School to prepare the school’s classrooms for the new year.

Ballard had applied and was accepted to the program prior to the start of the summer and said she learned a lot on the job.

“Everyone was so nice and treated me like family,” she said. “I learned how to work as a team, budget and save money, and I was empowered as one of the few women working in this position.”

Ballard, who spends her free time working on various art projects, said if the opportunity presented itself again, she would be more than thrilled to participate.

Looking to the future, Ballard said she hopes to one day work in the medical field and follow in the footsteps of her grandmother, who was a certified nursing assistant at Stony Brook University Hospital for over 30 years.
