Like Alray Taylor, Anthony grew up in Mission Hill and graduated from Charlestown High School, playing basketball for Alray Board Member Jack O’Brien. A Division I athlete, Anthony initially enrolled at the University of Loyola at Maryland for a short period, then transferred to Marist College. Unfortunately, the demands of balancing intense athletics and academics proved too challenging. He had to leave school, doing odd jobs before working in construction for seven years. Now working as a Radiology Technician Aide at the Newton Wellesley Hospital, he enrolled this fall at Middlesex Community College to pursue an associate’s degree in Radiology. With his current job, training and studies working in concert to advance his career, he plans to continue his education in Medical Imaging or a related field.
