Frederick Shegog is the recipient of the Phi Theta Kappa international honor society of two-year colleges for his stellar academic accomplishments and unselfish community volunteerism. Freddie credits Delaware County Community College with helping him turn his life around from homelessness and, as he says, “dumpster diving,” to achieving honors in academics. This has propelled him to create his own company, The Message LLC, and become an inspirational speaker for mental health and addiction.
I was blessed to survive addiction and every day I take life with gratitude. I have been blessed with a gift and I am using it to change the world. . . one youth at a time.
