Anthony Swanegan, San Diego, CA
Helix Charter High School
For the past 4 years, Anthony has volunteered his time at his former middle school to serve as a mentor. The middle school has a large population of at-risk, inner-city, low-income students. As a previous attendee of the academy, Anthony is able to relate to the students on a more personal level. Though he leads by example, Anthony makes it very clear to the students that prison or gang involvement is not an option. Anthony is also an active volunteer with multiple organizations in his community, and he is a 3-year member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
