According to Ambassador John Dunn ’17, at Huntingdon “you never meet a stranger.” And when you see that sandy blonde hair walking toward you, there’s always a big smile beneath it, adding to all that brother- and-sisterhood. John grew up in Highland Home, Alabama, and he loves the great outdoors. Hunting, fishing, watching football or baseball, playing football and intramural sports, hanging out at the lake, doing a backflip off a 90-foot cliff into water (ahem, John, maybe you shouldn’t try that again), this Hawk loves basking in the sun and catching a breeze. His favorite person on campus is Coach Mike Turk, “He is my coach, but I can go to him about anything and know he will give me great advice.” If John could have dinner with anyone on the planet, he’d choose University of Alabama Head Football Coach Nick Saban. “I like his coaching style and philosophy and how he does not have favorites, he treats everyone equal without letting one be above the team. He is one of the best to coach the game.” Outgoing and fun-loving, John’s also good with the books, earning a place on the Dean’s List of High Honors, on the USA South All-Academic Team, and in Kappa Delta Epsilon honor society. He’s a physical education major who plans for his next step to be a master’s degree in that field. Although he grew up on the Huntingdon campus as the son of a staff member, he says he chose Huntingdon for the “beautiful campus, feels like home, and very respectful and caring staff.” John is also dependable, hard-working, and responsible. He’s the kind of guy you’d want for a big brother, and we’re mighty glad he’s part of this year’s Huntingdon Ambassador team.
