Earlier today High School senior Kyle Shepherd called me with some good news. Kyle just got accepted to Yale!  Kyle was appointed by the Greenburgh Town Board to the Greenburgh Police Community Advisory Board earlier this year. He was a Greenburgh summer intern and introduced former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to fellow interns during the former First Lady/Senators Zoom meeting with our summer interns. Kyle also is a graduate of the Greenburgh summer police youth camp--and interacted with the police. Kyle told me that his experiences working with Greenburgh officials helped prepare him for his upcoming education at Yale.
