Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
Croton-Harmon High School senior Dan Vlad accepted an award from Arlene
Gonzalez-Sanchez, commissioner with the New York State Office of
Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, on Oct. 20 for his work in the
school and beyond.
Vlad currently serves as president of the
school’s Teen Leadership Council and was selected to serve as a youth
staff member during the Eastern States National Youth to Youth Summer
“My role at the conference was to be a
leader, role model, support system and helper to any in need,” said
Vlad. “It's important to have this group in our school because it does
promote a positive environment and alternative to kids who are unsure of
what they want to do. I have personally seen how this group has changed
students in our school for the better.”
Vlad has been an active
participant in the Teen Leadership Council during his time at CHHS, and
also works closely with the Croton Community Coalition on anti-substance
abuse efforts in the community. http://bit.ly/1veSoGu
Dan is the son of volunteer fireman and Croton businessman, Danny Vlad.
