Meet Our Students: JJ Phillips

JJ Phillips is 16 years old and goes to Durant High School. When he’s not in school, he likes to work out and play baseball. He even wants to be a sports talk show host when he grows up. His favorite meal is a burger, and if he could have lunch with anyone alive or dead, he would go to Applebee’s and eat a burger with Will Ferrell. He looks up to his parents, and they are his role models in life. To JJ, the power of giving means using your skills to help others that don’t have that ability.
