Little Brother of the Year Honored at The White House

First lady Michelle Obama arrives with 11-year-old Anthony Saldana of Austin at a White House event marking National Mentoring Month. Anthony was recognized as the 2009 National Little Brother of the Year on Wednesday in ceremonies where President Barack Obama announced a yearlong mentoring program that his aides will lead for young men in the capital. Anthony's big brother is Ben De Leon, an Austin lawyer who was honored by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America in June.
