The City of Albuquerque Declares June 15, 2015 Dylan Pfeiff and Daniel Wilson Day
Councilor Lewis Honors Two Exceptional Young Community Role Models
Councilor Lewis is honored to announce that the City of Albuquerque intends to declare June 15, 2015 as Dylan Pfeiff and Daniel Wilson Day at the June 15 Council Meeting.
Daniel Wilson and Dylan Pfeiff
Daniel Wilson and Dylan Pfeiff are two young men who have achieved great success through hard work and determination, from being among the top of their respective classes at Cibola High School, to writing original and hilarious comedy sketches as a part of Cibola’s S-Troupe, to winning the 6A State High School doubles championship. Daniel Wilson undertook a 36-mile walk from the volcanoes through the city to the top of Sandia Peak a week after losing his mother to colon cancer in April of 2014 and inspired Dylan and others to take “The Walk” to support him and honor his mom. Dylan Pfeiff has been a faithful and supportive friend, on and off the tennis court, whose on-court maturity and composure enabled the team to come back to win the state tennis championship this year after losing the first set 6-2.Daniel Wilson is a man of integrity, who maintained his over 4.5 gpa to finish in the top 10 in his graduating class in spite of losing his mom in his junior year of high school and will attend Vanderbilt University on the prestigious Cornelius Vanderbilt scholarship; who volunteers his time as a leader in Brothers Together, an organization that helps troubled young men; is active in Young Life and volunteers as a leader in Wyld Life for middle schoolers; and who is always willing to drop anything to help someone in need; and
"When young people in our community are looking for examples to follow, they need look no further than these exceptional guys from Northwest Albuquerque, who set their goals high and put their best effort into everything they do," said a very proud Councilor Lewis.
WHILE WE KNOW THAT THESE TWO YOUNG MEN WILL BE SUCCESSFUL WHEREVER THEY GO, WE HOPE THEY WILL NEVER FORGET WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND WILL RETURN TO ENRICH THE ALBUQUERQUE COMMUNITY WITH THEIR GIFTS AND TALENTS.
