South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club honors Kamiak senior
The South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club has named Kamiak High School's Oliver Dilts as its Student of the Month for December 2016.
He was recognized for his accomplishments at a recent Rotary Club meeting at Shawn O’Donnell’s American Grill & Irish Pub.
Dilts is the son of Michael and Laura Dilts. Oliver was accompanied at the recognition by his parents.
Dilts has an amazing attitude about life – and he likes school. His favorite class is AP Government with Mr. Reichernbach, who Oliver says has made him a better student.
Dilts is involved with Kamiak Kare, an afterschool program that helps the greater Kamiak community and sends inspirational messages to the student body.
Oliver also helps out with Kamiak Companions, an after-school monthly meet-up with students with special needs and the general education students. He also founded KSPN, kind of like ESPN … but just for Kamiak students.
Dilts is a bonafide football player. The Knights’ team captain has been a four-year letterman, earning first team, All-Wesco 4-A his senior year as an offensive lineman.
He was second team All-Wesco 4A his junior year. He has played offensive guard & tackle, center, and defensive tackle.
Dilts was nominated for the 2016 East-West All State High School football game. He received recognition as Athlete of the Week and received the Kamiak Coaches Award and Captains Award.
Dilts likes to help out. He volunteers by feeding the homeless at Wesleyan United Methodist Church. He also helps animals in-need.
“He is a selfless person in the truest way. He is always willing to help anyone in need; whether it would be with their school work or a ride home. Oliver is a very gracious person. He is the epitome of a Kamiak Fightin’ Knight,” said Alex Johns, Career & College Counselor at Kamiak.
Oliver likes to travel. He’s moved from state-to-state; born in California, then moved to Georgia when he was 8 years old. During his sophomore year, he moved to Washington. He also likes to collect magnets from different places he’s been to.
After graduation from Kamiak in June, Dilts would like to attend a small college and possibly major in nursing, as he really enjoys helping people.
Three words that describe Oliver Dilts: Kind. Funny. Helpful.
