Community Service and Passion at Glencliff

My name is Dalton and I am a senior at Glencliff High School. I am a member of Glencliff’s Academy of Medical Science and Research and am proud to say that we are among the top academies at Glencliff, not only in academics, but also in service and passion. I am incalculably excited to see brilliant minds and compassionate hearts at work! The Academy of Medical Science and Research at Glencliff truly cares about the health of others and health risks that are effecting the local community. This year, our academy will be having a 5K to spread awareness on diabetes and diabetes research.

In the summer on 2011, I was chosen to represent Glencliff High School in an internship at Meharry Medical College. Health messaging and professionalism were the two key points assessed at the internship. The program lasted four weeks, and upon completing the internship, the students were paid a stipend. Six students from Glencliff and six students from Whites Creek High School took part in this internship, and we all shared memories that will last a lifetime. If not for my academy, Glencliff High School, and Meharry Medical College, I would not have had this life changing opportunity!

I'm ready for that world.<< >>Taking Learning Outside of the Classroom

    I am proud of Dalton and the entire Academy Of Medical Science and Research for making Glencliff High School the outstanding school it is today. Student’s like Dalton are the reson I went into education and what makes me excited to return to work each and every day. I know that Dalton will be a success in life just as he is here at “the Cliff.”
