SARATOGA SPRINGS – Four Ballston Spa fifth grade students were recognized at the annual 5th Grade Moving-Up ceremonies at their elementary schools before the summer break. 

One student at each school was presented with the Maurice “Christopher” Morley Literacy Award. This award initiative honors the legacy of Village History Consultant Mr. Morley and is awarded to four students moving up from the elementary schools in the Ballston Spa Central School District to the Middle School who have demonstrated exceptional determination and perseverance on the road to reading. This award includes a recognition certificate along with a gift certificate to a local bookstore. 

The 2021 award recipients include Quinn Dewey from Milton Terrace Elementary, Noah Fitzgerald from Gordon Creek Elementary, Zakkai McZeal from Wood Road Elementary, and Madison Denney from Malta Avenue Elementary. The award is supported by the Rotary Club of Ballston Spa and presented annually by each Ballston Spa elementary school principal.
