  Mr. ENGEL. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor a distinguished 
member of the Edgemont community in my district, Mr. David M.C. Stern, 
who this year is being honored by the Edgemont Community Council with 
their Silver Bowl Award for Distinguished Community Service.
  David served two terms on the school board, from 2010 to 2016, was 
president in 2015-2016, and made his mark on the curriculum, audit and 
superintendent search committees, as well as liaison to the Edgemont 
School Foundation and the Scarsdale Teachers Institute. He has coached 
over 20 seasons of local youth sports--soccer, lacrosse, basketball and 
tee-ball--and now serves as president of Edgemont Youth Lacrosse. In 
the schools, David has taught Great Books and volunteered in the 
Wiggleworks reading program. He currently sits on the School Board 
Nominating Committee and is a former director of the ECC. David has 
been an assistant Cub Scouts den leader, and he has been a long-time 
member of Greenville Fire District's volunteer fire company, where he 
has served as a volunteer firefighter.
  David also currently serves as chairman of the board of Westchester 
Institute for Human Development, a Valhalla-based organization that 
works with developmentally disabled men and women, and member of the 
board of MusicCorps/Renovation in Music Education in Washington D.C., 
which uses music to help wounded military veterans recover. David has 
also been a director of the Scarsdale-Edgemont United Way, and a member 
of the Woodlands Community Temple School Board.
  Professionally, David runs a consulting firm that provides strategic 
business advisory services to healthcare organizations and investors. 
After graduating from Edgemont in 1982, David went on to get a BA and 
an MBA from Yale. David lives on Old Army Road with his wife Mary 
Elizabeth and their children Kasey, Gavin and Fiona.
  As you can see Madam Speaker, David Stern is a very active member of 
the community who is most deserving of this wonderful recognition from 
the Edgemont Community Council. I want to congratulate him on this
