This is great! Finally something about our youth that is impressive.I think we need to hear more about our youth that are doing something with their life,instead of all the cyber bullying on here.

He is a typical teen ager. Why make such a fuss he probably has wealthy parents

Do you prefer to read about the youth here that are into drugs,getting pregnant,into crime and all sorts of things that are costing are taxpayers in this town? I don't think this young man Cost us anything, and maybe if someone recognizes his excellence , he will come back here to help this dead beat town after he graduates.Now what is your definition of typical teenager?

Thank you for your words of kindness. Daniel is an exceptional young man. I know I'm his dad but everyone that knows him understands that. I will tell you he is very focused on his goals. I wish at least all the top ten students would take advantage of middle college. Daniel is expecting to get accepted at schools like UTK, Alabama, Stanford, U. of Penn. just to name a few. If he is accepted and his ACT scores are good enough his education will be paid for. I'm very proud of both our kids. We got told all the time by perfect strangers, " thank you for raising such polite children. It's so refreshing to know some parents still know how it's done". That is all I got to say.

Mr Dawson, you should be proud of your son,he is focused on his future. That is what I call proper parenting,and that is unusual in these times. Seems like all we ever hear is the bad stuff kids are doing, and I'm proud for for him. Keep up the good work Daniel.
