Halford experiences Central America
July 18, 2001
It was a “life-impacting experience,” for Baldwin High School senior-to-be Adam Halford. The local wrestler recently represented the U.S. Athletes in Action freestyle/greco-roman wrestling team on a wrestling tour and missions trip to Central America. Halford won a gold and three silver medals while compiling an overall record of 9-3 with seven falls. But most importantly to Halford, “almost 200 people dedicate their lives to Christ.” Halford first learned of the opportunity when BHS wrestling coach Kit Harris informed the team at practice one day about having received Athletes in Action information and asked who would like more information. After looking into the details, Halford decided to “go for it” and worked hard to raise the $4,000 needed. “I am really grateful for all the support from the community allowing me to go,” Halford said. “I had support from the church, friends, family … it was great.”
