TARRYTOWN - Six Westchester teens were honored on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for their work in their communities.

The teens received the annual African-American Men of Westchester Youth Legacy Award at a ceremony today at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in Tarrytown.

"The youth in this community are working hard and doing wonderful things and helping to build a better tomorrow," says William Carter of the African-American Men of Westchester.

One honoree was Mikayla Brown, of Elmsford, who received the Vision Award. Brown created a course at Alexander Hamilton High School that focused on African-American history.
