LYNBROOK - A Lynbrook teen is receiving national recognition for his volunteering.

Raymond Mohler has been selected as one of the top 10 students in the country by the 17th Annual Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.

The 14-year-old Lynbrook High School freshman was diagnosed with a hip joint disorder when he was two. He was treated for nearly two full years and just a few years after his treatment was finished, he created the Little St. Nick Foundation to help other children going through extended hospital stays.
