Angelis Campbell-Colon is Who WE Are.
Leader. Polite. tremendous work ethic, a tremendous asset. Gem. Those are the words of a William Penn teacher to describe Angelis Campbell-Colon, a junior, who aspires to go to Delaware State University to major in aviation so he can become a commercial airline pilot. Angelis received a certificate of recognition from the Easter Seals of Delaware recently for volunteering to help with a volleyball tournament that started on a Saturday at William Penn and ended at Delaware State University in Dover on Sunday. Special Events Coordinator Missy Baker said the tournament is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the organization that supports people with disabilities, and AJ went above and beyond to help. “He was amazing, his attitude was just amazing so we wanted to award him for being who he is. It’s exceptional for a high school student to step up and do this,” Baker said. AJ, who plays on the volleyball team thought he’d help out Saturday and get in an extra workout but said, “I convinced my mom to drive me all the way down to Dover to volunteer. I feel like people just don’t know how much fun volunteering is. Even though I didn’t get to party with my friends I still met people and I still had fun.” Tom Horne, a 1984 William Penn alum and board member for Easter Seals was there to see Angelis receive his certificate and told him, “I’m never surprised when I hear about Colonials doing well and doing good, you’re doing both. The way you unselfishly served others, particularly people in need is absolutely wonderful!” Angelis represents Who WE Are!
