Congratulations to our July 2020

Student of the Month Recipient

Ja'Den T. Swanson

Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High

Ja'Den recently graduated from Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School. He has been an active member for the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project for five years. He  enjoys wrestling and playing football. In addition to his academics and extracurricular activities he's certified in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Medical Responder (EMR). 


He plans to attend Florida International University and will major in Health and Physical Education.  After college he plans to become a Paramedic and then become a Firefighter. Furthermore, with Ja'Den's entrepreneurship skills he plans to own two businesses including a lawn/landscape and a convenient store. 


He believes that the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project has impacted his life by guiding him down the right path and by keeping him out of trouble.  Ja'Den also believes the program has taught him about brotherhood, being responsible, respectful and maturing as a young man.    


What it means to Ja'Den to be the role model student of the month is a dream come true to be recognized for all his hard work over the years. He feels he can set a good example for his fellow Role Models and people in the community from the youth to the elders.  


To conclude, Ja'Den considers the mentors in the 5000 Role Models as his role model. He is thankful for the program to be able to keep him out of jail or in a graveyard.
