The Light of a Leader

By Justin Dzoan – Talon Staff Writer

I recently had a conversation with Dawson Kislingbury, a light to those around him, not unlike the star Pollux.

Pollux is the brightest star in the constellation Gemini. This star is larger than the sun with 2 times the mass and 9 times the radius.

Dawson to me, is like Pollux in many ways. Pollux is one of the biggest stars and Dawson is one of the stars on the basketball team. His talent truly shines. Pollux in Greek and Roman mythology has a twin brother and Dawson has a brother as well, Dakota.

During the summers, Dawson has helped coach at basketball camps in the Redwood Christian community. He enjoys teaching kids the fundamentals of basketball. To them, he is their role model, their star.

Daniel 12:3 says, “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Dawson’s wisdom shines bright to all and is admirable to his peers and classmates. He’s a great guy. Go talk to him.
