Senior Excellence - Westbury High School

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Westbury High School features three outstanding members of the Class of 2020: Iyana McKnight, Samantha Melgar, and Olusola Babalola.

Olusola Babalola had a goal of being accepted into one of the top schools in the nation. Growing up with parents that immigrated to the U.S. from Nigeria, education has always been a priority in her life. Olusola was accepted to 7 out of 8 U.S. Ivy League schools. She has chosen to attend Harvard University.

Her role as National Student Council vice president meant that she had meetings with school officials along with her online classes in the spring. She led efforts to show appreciation for hospital workers, through mask donations and baked goods, and to provide relief resources for the school’s students. We admire your effort and dedication, Olusola!
