Mayor's Top Teens

Johnathan Dallas

Grade: 12th
School: Modesto



A leader from a young age, Johnathan Dallas has helped to coach others throughout his school career. He currently leads a volunteer crew at Memorial Medical Center and serves as an officer on The First Tee Junior Leadership Council. But Jonathan’s initiative doesn’t begin to stop there.

When initially denied to participate in The First Tee National Leadership Academy, Johnathan didn't give up and move on, he focused in and improved his skills. He took the opportunity as a growth experience instead of a defeat and realized his goal the next year when he reapplied and was accepted to attend the Academy in New York.

Not only a long-time volunteer and role model, Johnathan is now also a participant in the prestigious International Baccalaureate Program. Jonathan proves that if we keep our eye on the prize there’s no limit to what we can accomplish.
