Christopher B. has been a Sky Mountain student since third grade. He is planning to attend his number one college choice of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington in the fall. Chris has earned 37 dual enrolled college credits while maintaining a 4.53 GPA and being on the Dean’s List at Saddleback College. He was invited to participate in the National Honor Society as well as the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. He played hockey for the Capistrano Coyote Ice Hockey Team and was a Scholar Athlete. He still plays for an adult league and is likely joining the Gonzaga Hockey Team. Chris is a black belt in TaeKwanDo and served as a counselor at Special Camp for Special Kids and Emerald Cove Day Camp. He gained additional work experience as a pet sitter and tutor and volunteers for technology and AV support with his church. Chris is an avid photographer and also loves music, especially the guitar. He also enjoys dirt bike riding in the local mountains and desert with family and close friends. He is still exploring his major concentration but is considering a future in criminology or peace and justice. He is also looking forward to the outdoor adventures, such as snowboarding, available at Gonzaga and the surrounding area. Chris was accepted to all 11 of the colleges that he applied to. He has selected his number one choice, Gonzaga University, and received the Dean’s Scholarship award at Gonzaga. Sky Mountain gave Chris the opportunity to pursue so many of his interests while also still working at a high academic level. Our ES, Heather Eckert, and Guidance Counselor, Jami-Lynn Riley, have been invaluable!
