Joshua serves on ASB,is varsity football captain and plays varsity baseball. He says he wants to be a sports agent and plans to attend San Diego State University to major in Sports Management or Sports Marketing. He says volunteering with TCHS’ Itty Bitty Ball for young children gives him more satisfaction than he thought possible. Those who nominated Josh say teachers admire his choices in wanting to do the right thing by all people. "The art of balancing academics and athletics is a lesson he tries to pass along to fellow students."

Students are individually selected by teachers and school staff for their character, love of learning, leadership, community service and ability to persevere through challenging circumstances.
