2023 Commodore Barry Award Winners

The AOH National Constitution, designates September 13th as “Commodore Barry Day,” a national holiday of the AOH. In honor of this great Irish-American who is considered the “Father of the American Navy,” each year AOH Myles Scully, Division #1, Yonkers awards the Commodore John Barry Memorial medal to Yonkers Catholic elementary students who exemplify our motto of Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity and excel in Social Studies/American History. The student also receives a $100 check. Brother Steve Murphy along with our Chaplain Fr. Fernan and Brother John Hyland successfully lead this program and we thank them for making it a success in our community.
