There's a student at Verdi Elementary School who's teaching all of us about overcoming obstacles and working hard to succeed and this month He is News Four's Class Act Award Winner.
Evening anchor Shelby Sheehan recently surprised 3rd grade student Anthony Biondi during class with the award.
It was obvious from the start Anthony is a student full of enthusiasm, as he jumped up when his name was called.
Anthony has Autism, but through hard work and with the help of some good teachers he is doing well in his mainstream 3rd grade class.
His teachers say although school is very challenging at times for him, he maintains a happy, funny disposition that his peers and instructors really appreciate.
Congratulations to Anthony Biondi, News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner!
