Joseph has served in various leadership roles. Joseph is the founder and president of his school’s Students for Veterans Club, which partners with Help Heal Veterans, a non-profit organization in Southern California. The club has supported Help Heal Veterans’ efforts through bake sales and a “Christmas Message to a Veteran” campaign where students are encouraged to write veterans an encouraging message during the holidays. During the club’s existence, well over a thousand letters have been sent out to veterans because of the club’s efforts. The club’s annual “Love a Veteran” event in February encourages students to donate craft items utilized by the Help Heal Veterans organization. Over a thousand craft items have been collected and donated over three years.

The NSHSS Nobel Academic Excellence Scholarship recognizes high school juniors and seniors making a positive impact on society, and how college will help these students continue to make an impact for years to come.
