The ability to persevere in the face of difficulties is a key skill for success in school and in life. 2018 Daniels Scholar and Brighton High School, SD27J graduate, Nathan Hansen, has done just that.

On July 14th, Nathan successfully completed the American Ninja Warrior course in St. Louis, Missouri.

The journey to get to this point wasn’t easy. At age twelve, Nathan was diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency. Nathan struggled in sports due to the danger of size and potential injuries like concussions. In school, Nathan faced bullying due to his size and stature.

The love, support, and inspiration Nathan received from teachers at BHS are what helped him to keep going through thick and thin. Mr. Ted Halbert, Mrs. Alicia Champlin and Mrs. Kathy Gustad were just a few of many teachers who inspired him to persevere and never lose sight of his goals. “No matter what the case was, they told me to push through, dedicate myself, and give it my all,” Nathan recalls.
