Golden West High School, Visalia Unified School District

Pillar: Citizenship

Coach Nordell says, "Colton is a young man of character who excels in academics, athletics and in his extracurricular activities. Colton began as a young freshman on my varsity water polo team and has been a starter every year since. Colton was also in my AP Biology class and, that year, was the only student to score the highest grade of a '5' on the College Boards AP Bio Test. Colton is involved in ASB on the Golden West campus and promotes Blazer Pride in all the activities he coordinates for the student body."
