Congratulations to the September 2017 High School Student of the Month Carson B. from Arlington High School! Carson is an amazing student and an even better humanitarian and example for other students at Arlington.

Carson is currently ranked No. 21 in his class and he is taking six IB classes. He is on the Arlington golf team, serves on Leadership Arlington and is active in Student Council and National Honor Society

What sets Carson apart is that he created a nonprofit 10 years ago called Carson Cares. The mission of Carson Cares is to teach kids how to help others. Through Carson Cares, Carson has organized monthly and quarterly SERVE youth volunteer opportunities with SafeHaven of Tarrant County, Arlington Life Shelter and Mission Arlington, among other organizations. He also initiated a canned food drive called “Cans that Count” where AHS students gave more than 2,000 cans to the North Texas Food Bank. Carson Cares also organizes Season of Giving events, and, annually since 2012, more than 200 students each year assemble 500 boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

Carson is an all-around great student and person, and he’s a true asset to Arlington High School and this community. Congratulations, Carson!
