To recognize the extensive community service he has completed, Christian Brothers Academy senior Anthony Coniglio was honored as the Academy’s recipient of the Monmouth County Guidance Directors Association’s Caring Award.
Coniglio was recognized for three major service immersion trips that he completed over the past year: two trips to the De La Salle Blackfeet School in Browning, Montana and another trip to the De La Salle Educational Center in Homestead, Florida.
During these service trips, Anthony and his CBA classmates tutored and played games with the young students, while also assisting with various duties within the school buildings and nearby facilities, such as much needed repair projects and providing technology assistance in the classroom.
“Overall, these service opportunities showcased Anthony’s passion for service and his commitment to giving back to others less fortunate,” guidance counselor Kevin McCaig said. “Ultimately, these trips left an indelible impression upon not only Anthony and his fellow attendees, but also on the young students that they bonded with during their time in Montana and Florida.”
Outside of the service immersion trips, Coniglio is an active member of the Lasallian Youth group at CBA, visiting the Red Bank Charter School for tutoring sessions and traveling to Asbury Park to serve meals to the less fortunate.
