Josh - Jag award Oct. 6, 2008

Last year, as a senior, Josh had a gym class that also consisted of a freshman boy that had Down's Syndrome. Josh's teacher, who had known him since freshman year, told me that he saw such growth in Josh and was impressed when he saw Josh take that boy under his wing and encourage and help that boy each day in class. That teacher nominated Josh for the school's Jaguar Award that month and he was picked as the winner. This is a picture of him after the assembly where he was presented with that award and at which a speech was read from his teacher and also the man who had been his basketball coach since freshman year. (He shaved before the official picture was taken the next day that was put up at the school for the month.)
