As we anticipate the class of 2020 concluding their high school adventure, we would like to celebrate Baymonte alumni and their accomplishments. We would also like to ask for you to join us in prayer as they transition to the next chapter of their lives. Our first senior spotlight is Dillon Danner. Here’s what Dillon said about his time at Baymonte:
“I enjoyed the welcoming environment at Baymonte as soon as I took my first step on campus. It was the first school I attended, and I was able to make friends very quickly. The teachers and staff were always helpful and supportive. I vividly remember always looking forward to PE class with Mrs. Siemsen. This is where my interest and passion for fitness and sports grew tremendously.
Being a part of such a high academic school and also being taught the ways of the Christian faith at such an early age was great for me. Baymonte especially taught me leadership and maturity, which applied to both school and life. Baymonte also taught me responsibility and prepared me academically for the heavy workloads that I have experienced in high school.
I played football, basketball, and baseball all four years of high school. I was the quarterback, point guard, and catcher on my sports teams at Santa Cruz High School. I have been fortunate enough to be a part of seven championship teams and earn ten personal athletic awards in high school. More importantly, I have been very dedicated to my academics. I have gotten straight A’s throughout my high school career, which has put me on track to be my school’s valedictorian. I thank God every day for the countless blessings He has given me through high school and my life so far.
Next year, I will be attending The College of Idaho to further both my academic and baseball career. It is a high-academic, private liberal arts college located in Caldwell, Idaho. I am choosing between three different fields of study: Business Administration, Education/Teaching, and Criminal Justice. I have had an interest in pursuing a career as a manager or marketer of a sports company, teaching at the high school level, and becoming an FBI Agent or Homicide Detective.”
