Huntingdon’s size ensures that students are known, and that’s why the people who are part of the Huntingdon family make all the difference. Steady, strong, and ready with a wide smile, Ambassador Colton Edwards ’17 has made a difference on campus and, because he has embraced his Huntingdon experience with wide-open Hawk wings, college has transformed him, as well. “Ever since I’ve been part of the Huntingdon family, I’ve had great success,” says Colton. He adds, “My favorite things about Huntingdon start with the student-teacher relationship. Since Huntingdon is so small, everyone knows each other and asks where a person is if he/she is not in class. Having this relationship is so great because anytime you need help, it’s always there. Also, the walking distance to class is amazing.” Recruited from Huntsville High School to play lacrosse with the Hawks, Colton is majoring in business administration but also has a deep interest in history—so much so, he says he’d most like to have dinner with a Holocaust survivor. “Talking about their experience and hearing it first-hand would be a heck of a story,” he says. He has earned a place on the Dean’s List and participates in the Business Club and the Student-Alumni Association.  On campus, Colton supports other teams when he isn’t on the field himself, saying, “Football games are by far the most fun because everyone goes and it’s always a good time.” Off-campus, he enjoys Montgomery Biscuits games and viewing the animals at the Montgomery Zoo. He has set a personal quest to try every restaurant in Montgomery. “I still have a long way to go, but I’ll get there,” he says. Lift that fork, Colton! There are only a few months left in your time at Huntingdon. But then, there are all those restaurants beckoning in the big wide world beyond.
