A personal phone conversation with the president of the United States is a privilege typically reserved for heads of state, high-ranking state officials and big-dollar campaign donors. But one Trumbull teen is hoping to change that.
Trumbull High senior Jack Ferreira has been a volunteer at Bridgeport’s Downtown Cabaret Theatre throughout his high school years, averaging more than 250 hours each year. His efforts earned him the Presidential Service Award’s gold-level classification. Now he has his sights set even higher: the Lifetime Award, a distinction that carries with it the honor of a personal phone call from the president.
