We hope you enjoy Caught Doing Something Good! This is the fourth episode of our new show, focusing on the positive contributions of youth in Western Alaska; it's the first to be featured on our website.
In this episode of CDSG, John Boy discusses some of his favorite parts of living in Savoonga and why being a role model at such a young age is important to the community. He discusses his favorite teacher, favorite subject, and reveals what he hopes to be when he grows up.
John Boy offers a world of inspiration through the telling of his story as he touches on the hardships he's had to endure during his short time on this earth. Perhaps the most impressive thing John Boy had to share was his vision of what Savoonga would look like if it were drug and alcohol free.
This episode also features Savoonga principal Bobby Bowland.
