Dylan Martin 2017

Law school is calling Ambassador Dylan Martin ’18, and in preparation he’s majoring in political science and minoring in communication studies. For Dylan, the jury wasn’t out too long when it came to choosing a college. He says Huntingdon was an easy decision because of its size and proximity to his home in Montgomery. “I’ve always loved the Cloverdale area where Huntingdon resides,” says Dylan. “I was not surprised when I really fell in love with the school.” He adds, “Huntingdon’s location in the capital city is great for my political science major because of the amount of political and government internships here.” Dylan’s opinion of Huntingdon can be summed up in three words: “faith, virtue, and wisdom.” He says, “For students who really buy into and live out the meanings behind those words every day, we can not only better ourselves, but also our communities.” A graduate of Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School, Dylan is involved in Greek life through Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He makes a case that Greek life is a good way to get involved, saying, “the bonds and friendships I have made in my time here make me feel like I belong to the ‘Huntingdon family.’” His free time is spent working on his 1974 MG-b or doing anything out in the sun—fishing, camping, beach volleyball, intramural sports, and watersports are among his favorite activities. In his judgment, Dr. Jeremy Lewis, professor of political science, is his favorite professor because he is a “really smart and interesting person to talk to. Political science wasn’t my initial major at Huntingdon, and Dr. Lewis really made an impression on me and gave me a strong interest in politics.” Tall, soft-spoken, smart, and contemplative, Dylan’s courtroom appearance will harken images of Gregory Peck in To Kill A Mockingbird. In our opinion, Dylan rules, and that’s why he’s a Huntingdon Ambassador.
