During the celebration, Legislator Drucker presented Nassau County Legislature Citations to “Girl of the Year” Dreshta Boghra and “Alumna of the Year” Amy Stephanie Luis.
According to its mission statement, Girls. Inc. of Long Island provides school and community-based programming that serve the unique needs of girls ages 5-18, living in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Like similar regional chapters throughout the country, Girls Inc. Long Island strives to help girls achieve their full potential and pave the way for a brighter future.
“For generations, Girls. Inc. has inspired young women across the United States to be strong, smart and bold advocates for themselves, their communities, and for a more just and equitable future, and it is wonderful to see that their efforts are flourishing here on Long Island,” Legislator Drucker said. “It was a privilege to once again be a part of their annual luncheon and celebrate this year’s honorees.”
