Rock Canyon senior is HRCA lifeguard

About me

I was born in Indiana and moved out here when I was 9 years old for my parents’ work. I go to Rock Canyon High School — I’m going to be a senior. I play tennis and I was on the swim team. I have two brothers. I’m the middle child.

I’m on a search and rescue team called Arapahoe Rescue Patrol. I have to do six months of probation before I can officially become a member. We assist in finding missing people. I was called out to Loveland a couple of weeks ago to help search for a missing hiker.

Golden guard

Each auditor from Ellis and Associates — the company lifeguards get certified through at HRCA rec centers — can give one Golden Guard award for the year. The auditor comes to all four rec centers and looks at all of the lifeguards. It’s been eight years since HRCA had a lifeguard win an Ellis and Associates Golden Guard award. I got a certificate — I was a little surprised. I became a lifeguard last November and I’ve made one save.

Fun fact

I’m in the Rock Canyon Fire Science Academy. It’s essentially a Firefighter 1 class. We learn all about firefighting. We took a field trip to Littleton Fire Rescue and our final was a big burn day at the fire academy.

I really want to work in public service in the future.
