Paducah Tilghman Senior Will Denton Completes Intensive Tropical Marine Biology Research Study
A highlight of the program, explains Denton, was tagging and releasing green and hawksbill sea turtles through the Darwin Initiative project.
"My experience at Action Quest was so much more than I had hoped for,” he continues. “The program broadened my understanding of the marine ecosystem, and it gave me hands on experience in developing, completing and presenting a research project.”
Denton is a member of Tilghman’s National Honor Society, the Mock Trial team, and the Kentucky Junior Historical Society. He sings with the PTHS choir and its male a cappella group, Prime Rib. He recently earned the designation of AP Scholar with Honor. He is the son of Heather and Glenn Denton. Denton plans to major in biology in college.
