Assemblyman Dan Stec (R,C,I-Queensbury) joined Queensbury High School seniors Kalie White and Hanna Rinn and their parents in Albany this past week to celebrate their award-winning community service through the Reality Check organization for their advocacy efforts in reducing youth tobacco use. Kalie was the recipient of the 2014 Reality Check Youth Advocate of the Year Award for the Capital Region, while Hanna was this year’s runner-up. Stec was pleased to meet with these two student leaders and applaud their efforts in enhancing the health and quality of life for our young people.

“Kalie White and Hanna Rinn are great examples of teenagers using their time and talents to make their community better for those around them,” said Stec. “The awards given to them by Reality Check for their efforts in curbing teen smoking are well deserved, and on behalf of the 114th Assembly District, I want to extend my appreciation for all they have done and all they will continue to do for our residents.”
