Student of the Month - January 2022 (Dane Roberson)

Student of the Month - Slider (1).jpg

Dane Roberson is ready to start the new year with a bang!  As a seventh grader at Discovery Canyon Campus Middle School, he recognizes the value of his knowledge. This exceptional young man was reading at a fifth-grade level when he was in kindergarten. With a current 4.0 GPA, Dane is in the top 1% of his class of 300.  When asked “Why is a good education important to you?” he said, “A good education will help me through life, give me more brain power, and provide more opportunities.” He was recently nominated and selected to represent the seventh grade on the International Baccalaureate (IB) school evaluation committee.  Dane hopes to attend a Division 1 college to study Zoology and play football.  

Not only does Dane strive in academics, but he also plays hard on the football field and basketball court.  His coaches, Mr. O’Toole and Mr. Prater, motivate him to perform at his best.  Their guidance provides Dane the clarity needed to attain his future goals.

Dane is constantly  focused on uplifting and providing for his community.  He regularly gives to Care and Share food drives, participates in “fun runs” to raise money for his school, helps the elderly with their lawn care, and donates annually to Teens with Promise.

With Dane’s focus on learning, he looks forward to attending the virtual AAYLC program in March 2022.
