At 17, Bruce Phebus is a junior at Archbishop Mitty High School where he is a member of the varsity swim team and runs the school's Dungeons and Dragons club. "I'm a games freak," he admits.
Outside of school, Phebus volunteers at the Tech Museum of Innovation and has been in Scouts for eight years because "it gets me in touch with nature and lets me learn new skills." He has achieved the level of Life Scout, one notch below Eagle.
An avid reader, Phebus says that he has learned "more from books than from any teacher. I went places that I could only dream about."
Phebus plans on studying chemistry in college.
