At DSST, we celebrate our seniors like athletes. On May 2nd, we'll bring together every DSST student and staff member to the Denver Coliseum and cheer as each senior announces their next steps in college and career. We'll also have proud parents and community leaders joining us to show our support for graduating seniors as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
Next up is Ethan Hewitt, a senior at DSST: Green Valley Ranch. Here's what he had to say...
The person that influenced me the most while at DSST was Ms. Shipley. She pushed me to get getting better and achieve things that I never thought I could do. My improvement through high school as a student and person is credited a lot to her.
Going to college matters to me because I want to give back to my mom everything she sacrificed for me to go to school and play basketball. She worked hard to provide for me, so to go to college and for me to provide for her would mean a lot to me.
My favorite memory at DSST is the basketball season. Getting home around 9pm and having to do homework was tough, but all the people I have meet through basketball and the relationships that we built will stay with me forever.
