Meet Denton Cunningham, our senior spotlight of the week.  He is the son of Matthew and Julie Cunningham.   Denton plans to attend Metropolitan Community college then transfer to UCM.  Denton is a member of FFA, the Blackhawk Football Team and the Blackhawk Baseball Team.

In Denton's spare time, he enjoys binge watching all of the Transformer movies.  If he could choose to volunteer somewhere, he would spend time helping those in need at a homeless shelter.  

"What does Blackhawk Pride mean to you?"  Denton commented that it means "showing up and getting to work.  Pushing yourself past your limits and becoming a better person everyday."

We appreciate Denton's hard work and wish him continued success.  
Enjoy the rest of your senior year.

 Izaak Adams

Izaak Adams will graduate from Adrian High School at semester. His plans after graduation is to join the Navy.  In his spare time, he enjoys driving his car and cooking. 
Ms Dillilio stated that Izaak enjoys being creative in her FACS class.

If he could choose to volunteer somewhere he would enjoy volunteering his time at an animal shelter.  A favorite memory of Izaak's is traveling around Europe with his family.  

"When I'm in a slump, I comfort myself by saying if I believe in dinosaurs, then somewhere, they must be believing in me. And if they believe in me, then I can believe in me."  Then I bust out laughing.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Izaak luck and much success in his Naval career.
Destyne Bollinger

Destyne Bollinger plans to attend Metropolitan Community College and get a feel for what she is interested in.  After obtaining her Associates Degree she plans to transfer to Northwest Missouri State University.

In her spare time she enjoys spending time with friends, reading, and visiting family and friends in Liberty.  Destyne has been involved in cheerleading at Adrian High School.  If she could volunteer somewhere, she would choose to spend time helping at a homeless shelter. 

A favorite memory for Destyne is "When I was in elementary school, I auditioned to be a dancer for a program at my church called, "praise kids". At that time I had recently quit gymnastics and had zero dancing experience. I wasn't very good but I fell in love. After begging my mom, I enrolled at Studio 10 and danced there for two years. When I started to get better my mom enrolled me at Melroe's School of Dance where I started competitive dance. My junior year I became a a part of the Liberty Sapphire's dance team. Long story short, dance helped me gain confidence, make friends and gave me several great memories."

Destyne believes that Blackhawk Pride is the love not only for Adrian High School but the community as a whole.  It is represented in your attitude, your participation and inolvement.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Destyne continued success as she finishes her senior year and after graduation in May of 2018
