WINGer Snapshot
Anthony Gregg, 22

Anthony is a WINGSLeader serving Main Street Elementary School students in Lake City, SC. We asked him some questions to learn more about him, and here's what he said:

Where are you from? Florence, SC

What school do you attend? Francis Marion University

Major/Minor? Secondary English Education/Language and Writing Minor

WINGer since: 2013

What career or field are you looking to pursue after you graduate?
I am secretly hoping to pursue a Program Assistant position within the WINGS family!!! After working nearly one year as a WINGSLeader (WL), I’ve realized that I have had a tremendous impact on the growth of the kids in this community. To have such a heavy influence on my students is like gold to me. 

What have you learned through your service at WINGS?
I've learned that it takes a community to ignite change. The line of the Creed, “Working together is a must” has played a significant role not only in the WINGS community but in my personal life as well. I don’t believe I would have become such a confident WL without the help of my supportive WINGS family.

Has WINGS changed you in any way (habits, behavior, interactions, perspective, etc.) and how?
Oh, yes! You know, when I look in the mirror every day, I don’t see a reflection of myself; I see a reflection of WINGS. My attitude about other people has changed significantly as I see everyone as a unique link to a very special life chain I hold with pride. That said, I’ve become more humble and receptive to understanding the differences of others and myself. Thanks, WINGS!

Your favorite thing about serving at WINGS is:
Creating a WINGS community with my WINGS kids! I don’t think I can ever experience or give as much love and support as the kids give to me each day. They are the reason I smile every day and I wouldn't trade my family for anything else in the world!

What Main Street Program Director, Jessica Lovins says:
Anthony has been a great asset to our Lake City WINGS family. His professional and positive energy brings a lot to our staff and he is always eager to find fun ways to teach his kids SEL skills. Anthony really cares about the WINGS mission and he is always dedicated to doing what’s best for the team. WINGS is blessed to have such a committed and vibrant WL!
