MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – The Mount Vernon City Council celebrated three residents for the contributions they have made to the city.
Robert L. Cimmino, Bishop William D. Ewell and Mary Figueroa were each presented City Council citations for the services they have rendered to Mount Vernon.
Cimmino has been the coach of the Mount Vernon varsity basketball team for nearly two decades, amassing a record of 406-76. He has coached the team to six championships.
Ewell has been a community activist in the city for several years. He was appointed to serve Mount Vernon as a member of the Taxi Commission. Ewell will soon be voted as the secretary of that organization.
Figueroa retired from the medical research field to work full-time as a director of after-school programs for the Westchester Jewish Community Services. In the last five years, she has expanded the program to incorporate arts and media components.
