If you want to know amazing people, look no further than the high school seniors around you. This one here is top notch - not exaggerating one bit. I met up with Dallin and his sweet Mama for his Senior session back in May. Dallin graduated from Northwest Guilford High School as a member of the Class of 2018 and is off to college very soon. Usually I have to coax a smile out of my guy Seniors, but not this young man. In fact, it was just the opposite!
Quick story that I think exemplifies who Dallin is. I actually met his family at our church last Fall and I now volunteer in the youth organization there. A couple months ago during our week night activity, there was a young man sitting in the lobby all alone. I wanted to grab one of our youth to go invite the boy to come participate in the activity. I knew exactly who to go to - Dallin. He didn't even flinch at my suggestion, but instead walked right out into the lobby and started up a conversation with the young man seated all alone. A short while later, as I was observing the activity, I noticed that the boy had indeed joined in the games. Where most kids would probably hesitate a little to approach someone they don't know, Dallin was confident and friendly. Such a small act, but we all know that a little kindness can go a long way. Definitely a guy to watch because I just know he will be a light for good in this world.
