“Hello, I’m Mr. Johnson and I am going to invest in you as much as you want me to.” This is how Le’otis Boswell-Johnson introduced himself to Devin, an eighth-grade student at The Leadership Academies at Eugene J. Butler Middle School, on the first day of school.

Though Devin was one of the many students that Boswell-Johnson worked with as a member in Jacksonville, Fla., the two developed a special bond while Le’otis served as a tutor, mentor, role model, and friend to the young man during the past year.

When Boswell-Johnson first met Devin, the student was disengaged in the classroom and struggled with his English language arts coursework. As Le’otis began to build a connection with Devin, the student’s grades improved and his confidence grew.

When asked about his relationship with Boswell-Johnson, Devin said proudly, “He changed my life.” Le’otis says that he always believed Devin could be successful—the student just needed to realize it for himself.

A Commitment to Student Success

Boswell-Johnson’s impact on Devin is just one example of how City Year AmeriCorps members are committed to student success. In recognition of Le’otis’ service to his school, students, and community, he earned the 2018 Eli. J. Segal Bridge Builder Award, which honors one outstanding City Year AmeriCorps member every year for their commitment to building healthy communities through service and embodying the program’s values.
