I owe all my success to all of them.”

As a Key Club member at Matanzas High School, he took part in food distribution at a food pantry in Bunnell, participated in a beach cleanup at Flagler Beach, and signed up students, staff, and teachers for a blood drive in April 2021.
He was named to Daytona State’s President’s List in Fall 2020 (while studying as a dual-enrolled student at Matanzas) and was named to the President’s List in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, the Dean’s List in Summer 2022 and the President’s List in Fall 2022.
