When you take a second to make a difference, people tend to take notice.
Los Alamos High School Hilltopper Daniel Ahrens did just that — and many people will benefit because of his compassion.
The LAHS junior is the Speech and Debate team captain and the captain of the Lincoln Douglas debate team, but that isn’t what he was rewarded for.
“Daniel is an outstanding student who is articulate, well-mannered and blessed with an excellent sense of humor,” said LAHS Speech and Debate coach Margo Batha.
Ahrens is the second of four boys, the last two of which are twins, so he learned at an early age to be calm and collected.
He is a five-year member of the YES Corps program and as such, had honed his first aid skills with years of first aid classes and lots of trail work.
At the La Loma Invitational, the Hilltalkers 50th annual speech and debate tournament, this particular skill set came into use.
The event hosted 235 students from all over the state, along with more than 100 adult judges and volunteers.
