The top three — Emily Saurack, Abby Bozek, and Greg Franzetti, pictured left to right, received gift cards from Dr. Eric Byrne, Superintendent of Rye City Schools.
Among the distinguished guests were: Police Officer Alex Whalen, Superintendent Dr. Eric Byrne, Lt. Robert Falk, Mayor Josh Cohn, Officer Gabe Caputo, City Councilmember Danielle Tagger-Epstein, Officer Mauricio Gomez, Meg Rodriguez, Rye Arts Center Executive Director, Brian Dempsey, Chairman, Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Committee, and Nichole Chiffriller, Rye High School Art teacher.
