Houston High School’s Antonio Scott was recently a recipient of the Keeper of the Dream Award at the National Civil Rights Museum Freedom Awards Public Forum. This year’s theme was “Come Too Far to Turn Back Now” and it honored individuals who have dedicated their lives to equality and truth. Three students in the Mid-South are given this award each year. Students receiving the award are chosen for their leadership and philanthropy in their communities. Scott is the class president, and the president of many other organizations. Scott believes, however, it was his work with the Mid South Food Bank that caught the attention of National Civil Rights Museum. His campaign, Houston vs. Hunger, is very successful and continues to inspire peers to fight against hunger in the greater Memphis area. Friday, tune in to watch Scott on ABC News 24 at noon or six o’clock. He will be featured as their “Local Cool Kid.” He will also be featured as GMSD’s Student Spotlight in November. He is pictured with Jason Manuel, superintendent of Germantown Municipal Schools.
