David Andrews '11 had to miss the entire 2019 New England Patriots football season for health-related issues, but the team captain did not let that impact his community service work. Andrews could always be counted on to lend a hand to a number of charitable causes, and that work led him to be honored as the 2020 Patriots’ Ron Burton Community Service Award winner.
