The Edgemont Community Council Silver Bowl Award for Distinguished Community Service has been awarded almost every year since 1950. The ECC’s Silver Bowl Committee this year recommended that we present this year’s Silver Bowl to Edgemont resident David M. C. Stern.

David served two terms on the school board, from 2010 to 2016, was president in 2015-2016, and made his mark on the curriculum, audit and superintendent search committees, as well as liaison to the Edgemont School Foudnation and the Scarsdale Teachers Institute. He has coached over 20 seasons of local youth sports (soccer, lacrosse, basketball and tee-ball), and now serves as president of Edgemont Youth Lacrosse. In the schools, he has taught Great Books and volunteered in the Wiggleworks reading program. He currently sits on the School Board Nominating Committee and is a former director of the ECC. He has been an assistant Cub Scouts den leader, and he has been a long-time member of Greenville Fire District’s volunteer fire company, where he has served as a volunteer firefighter (as well as secretary and treasurer of the company). David also currently serves as chairman of the board of Westchester Institute for Human Development, a Valhalla-based on organization that works with developmentally disabled men and women, and a member of the board of MusicCorps/Renovation in Music Education in Washington, D.C., which uses music to help wounded military veterans recover. David has also been a director of the Scarsdale/Edgemont United Way, and a member of the Woodlands Community Temple School Board.

Professionally, David runs a consulting firm that provides strategic business advisory services to healthcare organizations and investors. After graduating from Edgemont in 1982, David went on to get a BA and an MBA from Yale. David lives on Old Army Road with this wife Mary Elizabeth and their children Kasey, Gavin and Fiona.
