Liam Berryhill is a high performing Montrose High School senior who is known for his leadership on Student Council, and his academic success. As he is ranked 7th in his class with a weighted GPA of 4.17. 

Because he is a stellar well rounded student, Berryhill was one of the four MHS students who were recently award the Daniel’s funds scholarship which is worth 25k a year for a total of 100k over four years of college, he has a solid future in sight.

“This opportunity has been huge and I’m more than thankful for being able to have won this scholarship. It helps me so much and I can’t wait to see what I achieve through it,” Berryhill said.

He’s also known for his ‘want’ to succeed and looking out for others’ as well. 

In his free time, Berryhill lives in the gym, works an after-school job, and quite often practices his culinary skills by making dinner for his family. He’s more specifically been working out at the gym for about a year and a half, although he doesn’t seem as it, it’s definitely shown. He’s put on tons of muscle mass since. When it comes to cooking, he finds that as an easy way to help around the house and being productive.

“Committing to working out and these side activities have taught me discipline and responsibilities,” said Berryhill. 

After graduation, Berryhill will be attending CMU to get his bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences of Cellular, Molecular, and Biological Development, after, he’ll attend PA School to become a physician’s assistant in either dermatology or pediatrics. 

“My high school experience was difficult but overall amazing, although it was hard to stay focused and determined, especially throughout the peak of COVID with AP and honors classes, it was all worth it in the end and I don’t regret a thing,” Berryhill said.

Just like every other student that lived the high school life during COVID, Berryhill struggled but came out with the best mindset and is glad how it ended.

“During high school, I made great friends, kept amazing grades and had the pleasure of joining National Honors Society and becoming student body Vice President,” Berryhill said.
