Hunter Daniels likes the dark sky of a rainy day, classic rock, watching baseball, and stories of war heroes. He is a senior at Langham Creek High school, where he plays tuba in the band. He serves as tuba section leader and he is one tenacious young man! For three years Hunter was a member of the LCHS marching band and was in a wheelchair due to a brace on his leg from multiple baseball injuries to his ACLs.
As a member of the Technology Student Association, Hunter placed first in a TSA state competition for recycling old school lockers into a game console. He even welded one of his favorite video games, Call of Duty, symbols onto the game console he created to decorate it.
Hunter is a very patriotic guy and his favorite subject in school is American History. He really admires is Audie Murphy, the most decorated American combat soldier of World War II, who received every military combat award for valor available from the U.S. Army, as well as French and Belgian, heroism awards. Hunter currently does physical training with the Army and the Marines several nights a week.
Teresa has known Hunter and his family since elementary school and it has been fun to watch him grow into such a mature, polite, young adult! Long gone are the days of both families sitting on the sidelines watching the kids play baseball… hello to the new journey they will embark upon soon.
Future plans for Hunter include training to be an explosive ordnance disposal expert (Bomb Squad) in the Army, which will require a lot of tactical and technical training. This group performs some of the most harrowing, dangerous work in order to keep others from harm’s way. We are sure he will save many lives. Hunter, we wish you all the best.
