Teen Who Spent 10 Hours Cleaning Up After Protest Rewarded With Car and Scholarship

A Buffalo teen who spent hours cleaning up after a protest has been rewarded—with a car and scholarship.

18-year-old Antonio Gwynn Jr. made headlines last week when he spent 10 straight hours picking up trash following protests in his home city.

After Gwynn’s story appeared on CNN and local news, a neighbor stepped up to give Gwynn a 2004 Mustang convertible.  A local business chipped in with a year of free car insurance, and Buffalo’s Medaille College offered him a full scholarship.

Who are some “local heroes” who help out in your community?  Do they get recognized for their efforts?
