In light of Red Ribbon week, Mrs. Nichols, our high school counselor invited motivational guest speaker Hunter Baughman to speak to 6-12th grade students. He was very engaging and inspiring speaker. Our student had the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how Hunter has overcome his disabilities to accomplish his dreams. Thank you Mr. Baughman for inspiring all of us to keep working to achieve our goals, no matter what our circumstances are. You can read more about Hunter below and visit his facebook/website to find out more.
"At 9 months old Hunter lost both legs below the knees and multiple fingers due to a form of meningitis. Though he looked a little different than everyone else, he tried to live a normal life. As a kid, he played soccer and basketball. It wasn’t until 14 his passion for fishing led him to fishing bass tournaments. Hunter had a boat before he had a truck to pull it! Today he lives in Judsonia, Arkansas with his wife Andrea and their daughter Kinley. They are expecting their second child, a little girl, in November 2022. Through many years of climbing the ranks of bass tournaments, Hunter started his dream job in March of 2021 as a professional angler fishing The National Professional Fishing League. When not on tour, Hunter fishes many local tournaments, enjoys spending time with Andrea, Kinley, and their family, going to church and has a passion for deer and duck hunting."
