Serving those who have served

Judge Memorial Catholic High School, Salt Lake City, UT

PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program asked our teen producers to find and tell stories of young people making a difference in their communities.

Connor Morgan volunteers at Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, transporting patients to appointments and delivering lab specimens. Connor, a high school senior at Judge Memorial Catholic High School, said the work combines his love of medicine and military history.

“Veterans have done so much for us, and most people, I don’t think, truly believe that or appreciate that, so I wanted to do something to help them,” he said.
