WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- County Executive Rob Astorino announced that 10 Westchester high school seniors who have shown exceptional commitment to their local communities of Cortlandt Manor, Dobbs Ferry, Greenburgh, Hartsdale, Rye, Scarsdale, Sleepy Hollow, Tuckahoe, White Plains and Yonkers have been selected as recipients of the Westchester County Youth Board’s 2014 Milly Kibrick Youth Service Awards.
The awards will be presented at a dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15, at the Davenport Club, 400 Davenport Ave., New Rochelle.
The Milly Kibrick Youth Service Awards are given in memory of Milly Kibrick, a prominent county social worker and youth activist who dedicated her life to helping underprivileged children. During her career and in retirement, she was the quintessential social worker, social entrepreneur, volunteer and political activist, pursuing social and economic justice for children of all ages.
“Milly Kibrick selflessly devoted her life to helping underprivileged children and made a lasting impact in Westchester County,” said Astorino.
