North Salem High School student Mason Goodman was named a recipient of the 2016 Milly Kibrick Youth Service Award for outstanding contributions to the community.

Goodman was one of 10 Westchester students selected for the award, as announced by County Executive Robert P. Astorino and the Westchester County Youth Board.

He will be presented with the award at a dinner Oct. 19.

Goodman’s community service includes the completion of his Eagle Scout project, which involved building concrete steps for the swimming pool at the Brewster Elks Lodge. He is additionally a Senior Patrol Leader in his troop, serving as teacher and leader.

“These students are examples of the positive community work and global reach by young people throughout Westchester,” Astorino said. “Just as Milly Kibrick made a lasting impact in Westchester County through her life’s work, this year’s honorees touch so many lives and will continue to do so in the years to come.”

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.

The Youth Board’s awards program recognizes high school students who are involved in building a flourishing, strong and compassionate community through individual efforts.
