Staff Spotlight - Simon Dinkin

I'm Simon Dinkin and I'm excited to be back for my 8th summer at North Star. I'm finishing up my junior year at Torey Pines HS in San Diego, CA. Recently I have been busy with ACT and finals. I also took my AP tests in May. At school I enjoy my English and U.S history course. I also created a club this year called future entrepreneurs. In the club we talk about marketing and business strategies, and once a month an employee from a major business comes and talks to us about their company. 

As the summer approaches I have been spending more time at the beach playing volleyball, and bodysurfing. As for soccer, our High School team finished as the number 1 seed in San Diego despite unfortunately losing in the finals of playoffs. My club soccer season just ended with a loss in the round of 32 in National Cup.I look forward to heading up to Wisconsin and having another great summer at North Star!
