Each of the junior high and high school students were selected by their teachers, school administrators and community members for their leadership qualities and ability to overcome life challenges including illness, abuse, drug and alcohol addiction and divorce.

“Being selected as an SCV Teen Hero was the best thing that’s ever happened in my life so far,” said SCV Teen Hero Jarad Almeida. “Unless you count getting two sodas for the price of one out of a vending machine.”

Almedia was selected as a Teen Hero by two of his Canyon High School teachers, Mary Purdy and Cheryl Hanks. He said he’s honored to hold the title.

All 18 of the 2011-12 SCV Teen Heroes received a gift bag filled with gift certificates to several local restaurants and a ticket to Six Flags Magic Mountain.
