NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Serena Seales, a junior at New Rochelle High School, will be among 10 Westchester County students to be honored with the 2016 Milly Kibrick Youth Service Award for their outstanding contributions to their communities.

The award ceremony will be held at 6 p.m., Oct. 19, at Beckwith Pointe in New Rochelle. The award is given by the Westchester County Youth Board in memory of Milly Kibrick, a county social worker and youth activist who devoted her life to helping underprivileged children.

Seales, 16, volunteers at the Wartburg Adult Day Care Center during the summer and tutors 5-to-8-year-olds at Kumon. She is a member of the National Honor Society and the Gardening Club. Seales is also part of the Ignite Mentoring program at the high school, where upperclassmen help freshmen transition to the high school.

She hopes to become a lawyer and a part-time beautician.
