MANGANO CONGRATULATES HONOREES AT ANNUAL MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. AWARDS LUNCHEON

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, in conjunction with the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration Committee, hosted the 32nd Annual Scholarship Awards Luncheon on Monday, January 16th at the Marriott Hotel in Uniondale. The County Executive honored four Nassau residents for their civil rights and humanitarian efforts in their communities. The awards luncheon was part of a weekend of events honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from which the proceeds benefitted the MLK Committee Scholarship Fund. Four high school essay contest winners were present at the luncheon and received scholarships.

“We are gathered here to honor the life, the dream and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said County Executive Mangano. “It is important for us to come together each year in order to celebrate Dr. King’s life and the accomplishments that we have made to fulfill his dream. Together, we owe it to him and his legacy to continue his work towards victory and to ensure that we build a better future for many generations to come. Congratulations to all of this years’ honorees.”

The Honorees at this years’ luncheon included: Human Rights Activist Claudia Swansey, who received a Civil Rights Award; Reverend Tae Jin Kwan, who received a Humanitarian Award; Tina Hodge-Bowles, President of the Hempstead/Uniondale Rotary, who received a Humanitarian Award; and Nassau County Police Detective Lt. Jeiver Espinosa, who received a Civil Rights Award.

The Essay Contest winners who received scholarships were: Kailah Williams of Hempstead High School, 1st place; Giselle Flores of Westbury High School, 2nd Place; Yerelys Espinal, Uniondale High School, 3rd Place; and Analda Felician of Westbury High School, Muslim Senior Essay Contest Winner.
