2020 North Hills Christian School All-County Scholar

Tyler Jamison Hunt

Parents: Bradley Jason and Jodi Lynn Hunt

Previous schools: First Assembly Christian School and Franklin Heights for elementary and middle school.

College: I plan on double majoring in business and biology at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Career plan: To become a dentist

Senior project: My senior project was mainly making sure each of the seniors were able to afford a senior trip at the end of the year. We were going to have a service project involving shoe collections to send to those in need in developing countries.

Outside of school: My top activities are working at Chick-Fil-A and community service.

Defining moment: Starting a cotton candy business when I was 7-years-old.

Secret to high school success: Simply determination and time management.

If I had $10 million, I would: Pay off my family’s loans for college. Beyond that, I would pay for several medical bills in the community and set up a project allowing for a start for a group of homeless people in Salisbury and Concord.
