Sabrina Layne finished first in her class to become the Valedictorian for the Oyster Bay High School graduating class of 2010. Sabrina plans on heading west in September to attend Stanford University outside of San Francisco. Sabrina will study Human Biology and Global Health.

Just last fall, she and her sister, Rebecca, earned All-County honors.

Sabrina was vice president of the OBHS chapter of the National Honor Society. She served as President of the Tri-M Music Honor Society and secretary of the Science Honor Society. Last summer, Sabrina was selected to participate in the Partners for the Future program at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. She was one of six high school students selected. Sabrina worked at the lab throughout the school year and will continue through this summer.

Sabrina leaves Oyster Bay having been one of the musicians to enjoy the once in a lifetime experience of performing on the main stage of Carnegie Hall. Sabrina played flute with the Symphonic Band and was the keyboard player for the High School Jazz band.

Sabrina has a delightful personality and an ever present smile.
