Amityville Memorial High School students Scott Friske and Jeffrey Reyes-Espinal have been selected to receive the Students Building Bridges Award by Jewish Community Relations Council of Long Island. They will be presented with their certificates at the Suffolk County’s Yom HaShoah program on May 9 to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The award, presented in partnership with the county’s State Senate and Assembly delegations, honors Suffolk County youth who work to create a more civil society. Student recipients are recognized for their efforts in bridging the community, teaching tolerance and completing services that aim to advocate change and improve lives of others. Scott and Jeffrey were nominated by social studies Chairwoman Dawn Mizrachi.
