Standout Student: Nicholas Dantes

Shreveport, LA - Nicholas Dantes has no problem leading Calvary Baptist Academy's bible class or the football, baseball and soccer teams.
 
"You got to prioritize your time.  Some nights you get home and there's not much time left to eat, shower and get all your homework done after practices and games and what not.  Sometimes it's some late nights and missing some sleep, but you'll be alright."
 
Nick has a full scholarship from the National Guard and will attend Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.  He's already been to boot camp and on June 20th he'll ship off to Fort Benning to finish training.
 
"It's always been something that I've wanted to do honestly.  It wasn't like any defining point and time that made me say I want to join the military."
 
That's why he already signed up for the National Guard.
 
"I wanted to be in the Army since I was a kid.  When I turned 18, I wanted to put my name on the dotted line somewhere."
 
Now he's looking ahead at serving his country and continuing his education at LSU.
