Ben Gotian recently won the Milly Kilbrick Westchester County Youth Award from County Executive Rob Astorino. Ben, a Beth El member for the last 13 years, is one of only a handful of high school students in the county to receive this award for exceptional community service.

Ben, who was nominated by Rabbi Harry Pell, the Associate Head of School at Schechter Westchester, completed over 160 hours of community service during his first three years of high school and shows no sign of slowing down. His community service spanned three states and ranges from playing saxophone in New Rochelle nursing homes, working in soup kitchens, volunteering in shelters and rebuilding flood destroyed homes in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Congrats Ben! We're so proud of you!
