Favorite DCA Memory

My favorite DCA memory was just everyday eating lunch with my four best friends: Sam, Olivia, Kaia, and Christine. It felt like we were always laughing and always making amazing memories together.

What will you miss most about DCA?

I will miss all the events from homecoming to spirit week to the basketball games. I loved going to every single event and I’m just going to miss the support and school spirit that we had.

Was there a DCA teacher or staff member that had a significant impact on your life?

Mr. Johnson or as we know him Coach Chris. He has poured into my life on an off the court. Not only did he teach me everything I needed to know in order to improve in the game of basketball. But he is basically the reason that I am able to go to UCLA, as I waited to hear from God about where I was going he taught me to trust in God. Coach Chris made me a leader and equipped me with every skill I needed to be ready to go to such a big school, and be so strong in my faith.
