Colin Flynn '15 was honored as Kennedy Center Youth of the the Year at the recent annual awards dinner. Colin has volunteered for the Kennedy Center for the last three years at Black Rock School in Bridgeport, as part of the Lighthouse Program. The Kennedy Center supports people with disabilities by offering a broad range of programs and services for children, adults, and the elderly with diverse disabilities. The Bridgeport Lighthouse program works with children with special needs, such as autism, to help them be more successful in an after school program. Colin's brother Brendan '17 also volunteers through the Kennedy Center, and both boys were featured as News 12 "Hometown Heroes" in December.

At Fairfield Prep, Colin has been a Magna Cum Laude student and is a member of the National Honor Society. He has taken an active part in many facets of the school community. Colin has been a Peer Tutor as well a Leader on the annual Freshman Retreat. For the past two years he served as a Manager on the Varsity Baseball Team. This past year Colin designed a website for Prep’s new White Ribbon Club, an organization that works to bring awareness of violence toward women. Colin will attend Villanova University in the fall.
