As Roy Harper on “Arrow,” the actor spends a lot of time rocking red hoodies. Today, however, Haynes hung up his hoodie in favor of a blazer and tie, and it was all for a good cause.
Haynes joined the ranks of Gompers Preparatory Academy students today as an honorary senior, which is why the prep look was totally necessary. The former “Teen Wolf” star was in San Diego working to find students who would stand up against bullying as part of the Diana Award’s Anti-bullying Ambassadors Program. The UK-based charity, the only organization that “bears the name of the late Diana, Princess of Wales,” is dedicated to empowering young people to make a difference in the lives of others.
Although most people would dread going back to school, it seems like Haynes is getting as much out of it as the students are. The actor Tweeted:
These kids are some of the most inspiring people I've ever met. Gompers Prep Academy class of 2014! http://t.co/wCHs7jNSTF
