Drew HillYouth Deacon
Active in First Presbyterian Church since he was a “wee lad,” Drew Hill was one of the founding members of the church’s Youth Connection. Drew is an eighth grader at Academy for Technology and Classes, highly ranked by the New Mexico Public Education Department. Though college is several years away, Drew is drawn to environmental science or engineering as a career. First Presbyterian Church is central to his life because “it’s like a family.” Everybody knows each other, and because “the church offers opportunities for doing more in the community and world, and to learn more about God. It’s a place where I can bring my friends,” he said.
