Students and staff from Seaman Neck Middle School all contributed to a hand-made quilt in honor of their beloved art teacher, Ivy Bell-Bazer, who passed away in February 2018. Elizabeth Kennedy, current Seaman Neck Middle School Art Teacher, designed the center of the quilt with things that made Ivy happy. Together with Teacher Aide Alexandra Mammes, they sewed together all the squares. The quilt now hangs in the school. To further honor Ms. Bell-Bazer, a scholarship has been established in her name that will enable talented students from the school to attend classes at The Art League of Long Island.
