Aidan Mackenzie Recognized as Distinguished Youth

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

The Legislature recognized Ithaca High School junior Aidan Mackenzie, of Brooktondale, as the latest Tompkins County Distinguished Youth, the award presented by Legislator Dan Klein, who recognized him for his academic, athletic, and community service achievements.  A member of the HIS tennis team, Aidan is taking three Advanced Placement and two Honors classes, and attended a summer program at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD, studying documents that are the foundation of democracy, such as the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and Supreme Court decisions.  Last year, he served with his church youth group on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, helped in flood relief in for residents in Apalachin, and recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout, as his Eagle project designing and organizing construction of a deer fence around a planned garden at St. Catherine of Siena Church—the garden to be used by the Church Teen Youth Group to grow food for Loaves and Fishes.

The Distinguished Youth Award is co-sponsored  by Bangs Ambulance Service, Specialty Trophy and Awards, Purity Ice Cream, and Cayuga Radio Group.
