Local teen honored at White House

David Sanchez, 18, who attends The Prairie School in Racine, was among the 15 inspiring young people named to PARADE magazine's first-ever All-America High School Service Team.

Sanchez was honored yesterday afternoon at a private reception at The White House, attended by Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan.

Sanchez, who was featured on the cover of the June 6 issue of PARADE alongside actor Matthew McConaughey, was named the First Team in the Economics category for his work on Job-Link Racine, an organization that helps homeless and at-risk teens find work.
