Legislator Koslow Honors Kennedy HS Student for Autism Advocacy

Koslow - Autism Acceptance

(BELLMORE, N.Y.) – In observance of April as Autism Acceptance Month in America, Nassau County Legislator Seth I. Koslow (D – Merrick) joined his colleagues in congratulating JFK High School junior Jayda Levine on Monday, April 16 for her leadership and advocacy for greater accessibility and inclusivity in our community. Legislator Koslow joined with Nassau County Legislator Michael Giangregorio (R – Merrick), who is the father of an adult son living with autism, in honoring Levine.

As part of her Kennedy High School leadership program, Levine spearheaded an event called “ASD on Ice” at the Newbridge Arena, which was designed to provide children on the autism spectrum with a safe, comforting setting to skate. She also raised thousands for Eden II’s Genesis Programs, a not-for-profit organization that provides services for individuals living with autism.

“Through her philanthropic acts, Jayda Levine is doing tremendously important work to raise awareness of this crucial issue and improve the lives of people living on the autism spectrum,” Legislator Koslow said. “The compassion, ingenuity and drive of our young people is a constant source of inspiration for me, and we are all tremendously grateful for her laudable work in our community.
