Etienne David Adorno, a 27 year-old resident of Woodhaven, has been honored this year with The President’s Volunteer Service Award for the over 4,000 hours he devoted to community service. Adorno was recognized and honored for volunteering to be an educator and translator to individuals who did not have the knowledge or financial resources to adequately protect their legal rights. Acting as an intermediary, he spent hours making certain those he helped were treated fairly and not taken advantage of by the legal system.

In addition, he developed a consumer advocacy website, and used social media to keep New Yorkers aware of changing parking regulations and traffic laws, which resulted in the noticeable reduction of costly parking and traffic tickets.

Adorno attended John Jay College, where he received a Baccalaueate Degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Law and Due Process. He is currently a member of the local Woodhaven Residents Block Association and of Community Board 9, where he serves on the Consumer Affairs/Public Safety Committee and the Education.
