To commemorate National Girls and Women in Sports Day, the Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School Booster Club presented a plaque of recognition to Town of Babylon Councilwoman Jacqueline Gordon, a past president and secretary of the Booster Club and a longtime supporter of the students in Copiague.

Gordon’s two children started playing in the Copiague Youth League in 1993. With the Booster Club, she traveled all over Long Island, supporting Copiague athletics programs. In 1984, she enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves, where she became a lieutenant colonel in 2007. In addition, Gordon has been involved in numerous organizations and was honored as a “Woman of Distinction” by the New York Senate in 2014.

Recognized for her many years of dedicated service and contributions to the students of the Copiague community, Gordon was honored during a halftime presentation of a girls varsity basketball game on Feb. 7.
