August Antone, son of Roberta “Bobbi” Carlos

What’s the most important thing your mom taught you?
My mother has taught me many important things in life, but I think one of the most important is that I should never forget where I come from. No matter how far you get in life, you should always remember that you are a part of a community and that will always be your home and who you are.

What is your favorite childhood memory of your mom?
I have too many memories to pick one, but some of my favorite memories are of my mom and my family traveling together. Whether it was a trip to a theme park in California or a simple camping trip to Payson, we always had a great time.

What is something your mom always says to you?
Whether it was school or work, she has always told me hard work will pay off. Even today when life gets pretty hectic, she’ll tell me to keep working hard and good things will come.

What makes you proud of your mom?
My mom has always had an incredible work ethic. She has dedicated her life to serving this Community and has given it so much. I am proud of all the hard work she has done for not only her family at home, but her family throughout the Community.

What’s the most important thing your mom taught you?
To believe in myself and know that I could be whatever I wanted in life.

What is your favorite childhood memory of your mom?
When I played sports, whether it was basketball or wrestling, she didn’t like to watch my games or matches because she’d get nervous; but I remember every time she put that aside and would be in the stands watching.

“I love you, son.”

My mom’s willingness to step up and help out when needed, whether it’s for our family or our Community.
