Indian American high school student Yash Modi was honored by the Oyster Bay, New York, Council recently.

Modi, a student of Jericho High School, was honored by the town board headed by the entire council, spearheaded by Supervisor Joseph Saladino, according to a news release.

The New York State Future Business Leaders of America conference was held in Binghamton, New York, in mid-April, during which there was a public service announcement event in which students had to make a video on soft skills and present it to a panel of judges.

The Long Island-based team from Jericho High School and led by Yash Modi – son of a successful businessman and community leader Mukesh Modi, as well as mother Sudha – came in first place.
