UMSL Grad Student Honored as Hero
|Leonard Johnson, Give Back Day Hero|
And as Allstate notes, Johnson doesn't just talk a good game. When his sister passed away, he became the legal guardian to her young son, Jeremy. (We presume that's the little guy he's laughing with in the picture. Can you say "awwww"?)
The Give Back Day program uses Martin Luther King Jr. Day to encourage local volunteer work. Johnson will receive the honor, along with three other heroes, at the King Center's Salute to Greatness Banquet in January.
See? There is good news out there in America's Most Dangerous City (TM)!
