JOHN QUINONES TO RECEIVE “CHAMPION FOR YOUTH”
CTN Peer Mentor, John Quiñones, a Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio alumni, will be awarded the prestigious “Champion for Youth” award at the organization’s Youth of the Year Gala on February 8th, which will be held at the Witte Museum, Mays Family Center at 6:30 p.m. Quiñones will sign books from 6:30 to 7:30.
The ABC Correspondent and host of “What Would You Do?,” has credited his time at the Calderon Clubhouse on San Antonio’s West Side for much of his success.
“The Boys and Girls Club in my old neighborhood in San Antonio had everything to do with the man I am today. The club kept me out of trouble, introducing me to sports, teamwork, good ethics and morals,” he says. “In fact, I think my time with the Boys & Girls Club might well have planted the idea for this ABC TV show that I created years later, called, ‘What Would You Do?’ The club taught me the importance of always trying to do the right thing. And, for that, I am eternally grateful.”
