(WTNH) — Congratulations to 15 year old Dara Malone, this week’s Everyday MVP. Each week, News8 and Frontier Communications highlight Connecticut kids who show great mind, values, and promise. Dara has shown outstanding dedication to the community.
At a young age Dara is a current US Navy Sea Cadet. He is passionate about working with veterans and aiding the local community whenever he has the chance. He has raised money for veterans and a local food pantry. A local serviceman suffered severe injuries in Afghanistan and Dara collected donations for that local soldier in exchange for bottles of ice cold water at a brutally hot swim meet. Dara even participated in helping construct a family shelter in Massachusetts.
When he’s not performing community service, he is taking part in his school’s swim team. He i the very definition of hard work and dedication, which what makes him this week’s Everyday MVP.
