Trevor Annis, Weber State University
Trevor Annis, a junior studying microbiology and chemistry at Weber State University, is a student leader focused upon the health and well-being of his community. His collaboration with Your Community Connection, a local domestic violence shelter with transitional housing for women and children, created healthy recreational outlets for teens. His efforts resulted in an open gym program that has continued for the last three years. He has become a community-engaged leader who has inspired other students to collaborate with 14 community organizations and address domestic violence, food insecurity, lack of low-cost housing and social development among low-income youths. Trevor’s potential for bringing about improvements in the health and wellbeing of communities is as boundless as his talent for organizing, leading and empowering others.
