Junior Devin Dunmon is involved in multiple sports, including powerlifting, football, and track and field. Football is one of his favorite hobbies and he is on the offensive line for the Battlin’ Bears.

Although he is proud of his accomplishments in football, he is most proud of being inducted into the National Honor Society. His successes in the classroom will help him with his future goals of going into the medical field and having his own health clinic.

According to Dunmon, his biggest inspiration has always been his dad. Even though his dad didn’t finish high school, he made his own successful business and was able to provide a good life for himself and his family.

“My family motivates me to do better,” Dunmon said. “They always push me to do my best in everything.”

According to his health science theory teacher Tara Parsons, Dunmon is a genuinely kind person and is always willing to help.

“A couple of weeks ago, I saw a picture of Devin helping clean up the concession stand after playing in a football game and I was just blown away,” Parsons said. “That is so fitting of his character.”
