“Scott, my Leadership Rockland classmate, board mate, and friend, has played the key role of Treasurer for more than 10 years, while also serving on the Executive Board. His contributions of time and expertise have benefitted the organization and it has remained solvent through some challenging times,” said Dorothy Filoramo, President of the Executive Board, Leadership Rockland, and Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Dominican College. “Scott has served on almost every committee and gained the respect of fellow board members for his insights and guidance on issues that affect Leadership Rockland’s strength and recognition as the premier Leadership organization in our county.”

“My passion for inspiring tomorrow’s leaders and for the Rockland Community are direct results of my personal experience as a student of the Leadership Rockland program,” said Goldstein, a West Nyack resident. “I am honored to be recognized as Leader of the Year and look forward to my continued involvement with this great organization.”
