On Friday, February 21, Senator Lee Zeldin (R,C,I-Shirley) hosted his 3rd Annual Black History Month Awards Ceremony at the Brentwood Public Library to recognize six honorees who have made innumerable contributions to the Third Senatorial District.

The evening featured a keynote address by Dr. Shaun L. McKay, Ed.D, distinguished tributes, and a performance by dancers from the local 3-D Dance Studio.

"These honorees are the pillars from which so many in our communities draw their strength,” said Senator Zeldin. “They have brought immeasurable value to each of their respective fields and it was an honor to have the opportunity to recognize and thank them for all that they do.”
