Teenager Awarded Full College Scholarship And Given A Mustang Car By Locals For Cleaning City Streets After Protests

A teenager in Buffalo, New York, has been praised for cleaning up his street in the aftermath of protests and rioting and has been rewarded with a full scholarship and a brand new bright red Mustang car.



18 year-old Antonio Gwynn Jr., seeing glass and debris strewn across Bailey Avenue, took it upon himself to go out at 2am with a broom and trash bags and clean the streets as he feared key workers, such as nurses who are still dealing with the CoVid-19 epidemic, would be unable to make it to their work the following day.


He then worked for the next 10 hours, getting things into as good a shape as possible – in fact, by the time neighbours came to assist the following morning, the job was pretty much done for them. Volunteering is certainly nothing new for Gwynn who works through both his church and Kappa Phi.


Matt Block, 27, who saw the story of Gwynn’s clean up operation on Facebook, decided to gift him his own 2004 red Mustang, which he loved, but only used occasionally. He noticed that Gwynn had been asking for car advice on Facebook, and thought this would be the perfect show gratitude. By coincidence, Gwynn’s mother who has passed away also drove a red Mustang when Gwynn was a child.


Block said,

“I couldn’t come to grips with selling it and this was a good way for me to get rid of it and know someone that gets it is going to appreciate it.”


Bob Briceland, a local car-insurance broker, also threw in 1 years free car insurance so Gwynn won’t be out of pocket.


Things were to take an even more positive turn for Gwynn, who is currently a high-school senior, when he was contacted by local Medaille College. He had originally been planning to go to trade school while saving for college but, instead, Medaille contacted him to reward him with a full scholarship.


He now intends to study a business major with mechanics as a minor. He said in response to the scholarship offer that he,

“Literally stopped, pulled over, and started crying. So did my great aunt. My little cousin did also ... this is a great opportunity I have right in front of me.”


Gwynn now hopes that he will able to graduate and start his own business, possibly a car mechanic business, in the future.


With so much chaos and anger in society right now, it is really heart-warming to see people standing up for their communities and their fellow citizens.
