Legislator Tom Cilmi along with Presiding Officer Robert Calarco presented Navya Gautum of Hauppauge with the Suffolk County Legislature’s Distinguished Youth Award for the 10th Legislative District. Navya received the Gold Medal, which is the highest level of achievement.
Cilmi said, “Navya is a shining example of the best of our youth. This is not the first time she has been honored by me. In 2017, Navya placed first in the 6th Grade level at the annual Brookhaven National Laboratory Science Fair. She is a delightful young lady who will no doubt be very successful in anything she does.”
This award, established in 2017, recognizes Suffolk County’s youth (ages 13 to 18) for their achievements, initiative and volunteer service. To learn more please visit the Legislature’s website https://www.scnylegislature.us/896/Distinguished-Youth-Award.
