Bowling Into a
In 2012, Jared self-described himself as a "kid who was alone in the crowd" of his middle school. That was until two of his friends, both DeMolay, invited Jared to a bowling event one weekend. Not knowing what to expect, Jared accepted the offer.
After finding many new friends, Jared had successfully bowled his way into a future in DeMolay in Arizona, with friends whom he formed "deep bonds" with.
Jared's newfound friendships were noticed by his parents, who felt like DeMolay made their son a completely different person.
IN JARED'S WORDS
"DeMolay has surrounded me with role models, positive influences, and true friends. I don't just have thousands of friends, but I have the chance to be a friend, leader, and mentor to young men all over the world. I'm thankful for the Arizona DeMolay Foundation for supporting my efforts and continuing to provide companionship for youth across the state."
