State Honoree

Timothy Dygon

Wyoming

Timothy Dygon, Tongue River Middle School, Ranchester, was recognized for becoming a volunteer Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). After helping at Westview Nursing Home, where his mother is a nurse, Timothy wanted to handle more responsibility. He took a CNA class with special permission from the facility's Director of Nursing, scoring a 97 out of 100 on the final test. Although he was only 11 years old at the time, the state granted him a license. He volunteers at Westview weekends and in the summer.
