Highlighting local kids that make a difference in the community.

Each week, will feature one student from the community who has done something special. This week, Plainview Patch is highlighting Plainview-Old Bethpage senior Matthew Friedrich.

Accomplishment: Friedrich was recently honored with a state-level Certificate of Excellence from the 2011 Prudential Spirit Community Awards Program for his extraordinary volunteer work.
