What the nominator said:

“What truly stands out about Tony’s successes is his passion for his students and his innate ability to identify a systematic problem; and then implement a creative, efficient and effective way to solve it. Through Tony’s accomplishments, leadership, vision and community service, Delaware College Scholars was born.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:

“Anyone that knows me well knows that I’m terrible with social media, but I’ve become a recent fan of Instagram and Pinterest.”

Biggest break:

“Earning an acceptance to Prep 9 in New York City, which eventually led to a scholarship to St. Andrew’s School; completely transformed my trajectory.”

Two words that best describe you:

Blessed and focused.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“Take time for yourself — you can’t neglect your mental and physical health.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“Do not settle — follow your passions, and do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”

In one sentence, define success: 

“Success is giving it your all regardless of the circumstance. Win, lose or draw, you want to be able to look yourself in the mirror when no one else is around and know that you did everything you could. Leave it all on the field.”
