Westchester resident and activist Denny Schneider has been chosen as the recipient of this year’s Howard Drollinger Achievement Award by the Drollinger Family Charitable Foundation.
“Denny is a longtime community advocate and leader in the Westchester community,” said Westchester Family YMCA Executive Director Karen Follette.
Schneider, a Westchester resident for over four decades, was honored along with several others at the 2013 YMCA Kids Need Heroes Luncheon Sept. 26 at the Radisson Hotel near Los Angeles International Airport.
“I was shocked, humbled and so very pleased (to learn about the award),” said Schneider, president of the Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion and a longtime advocate for regionalization of Los Angeles area airports. He is also a member of the Neighborhood Council of Westchester-Playa.
