Atrews "Pedro" Bell: A teenager who played on the Pajcic youth basketball team
Atrews "Pedro" Bell was unofficial leader of the hundred North Riverside teenagers who played on the Pajcic youth basketball team. Tragically, a number of Pedro's friends ended up in prison or as one of Jacksonville's homicide victims. Happily, many others have gone on to healthy adulthood with stable jobs. Some have even graduated college with the help of Gary and Steve's pledge of full financial support for any educational endeavor. Pedro continues to lead the pack. After graduating from FSU as a Seminole football captain, Pedro is now close to completing his master's degree while working full time as a social worker. No doubt, through his career and his unofficial mentoring, Pedro will help many future teenagers follow his footsteps to a productive place in society.
