Teen Who Spent 10 Hours Cleaning After A Protest Is Rewarded With A Car & College Scholarship

When an 18-year-old Antonio Gwynn Jr. saw the damage from protests in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, he decided to clean the streets by himself.

He started at 2 in the morning last Monday and didn’t stop cleaning for the next 10 hours. 

When an organized group of neighbors arrived later that morning to start clearing the damage, they found that teen had already done most of the work.

When word spread of how the teen took action himself, his community responded.

One man saw the teen’s story on the news and decided to give him his prized 2004 red Mustang convertible.

A Local businessman learned of the gift, and he decided to extend a year of free auto insurance coverage through his insurance agency.

After high school, the teen had planned to go to trade school while saving up to go to college. Butwhen Medaille College in Buffalo heard his story, they offered him a full scholarship where he plans to study business starting this fall.
