Caleigh Dahn has an impressive resume at 15
COLOMA — Caleigh Dahn is a Girl Scout, an aspiring zoologist, and a college student. And she’s 15 years old.
Home-schooled by her parents, Ed and Maria Dahn, the Coloma teen started attending Southwestern Michigan College when she was 14. In July, she spent two weeks in Costa Rica and Panama, learning about coastal ecology and helping with sea turtle conservation.
A member of Girl Scout Troop 8397 of Michigan and Wisconsin, she earned her Silver Award by placing a “buddy bench” at Grace Christian School in Watervliet, and is working on her Gold Award, equivalent to Boy Scouting’s Eagle Scout, the highest possible.
She plans to complete her associate degree in general science by age 17, transfer to Grace College in Winona Lake, Ind., for her bachelor’s degree in biology, and aspires to earn her master’s degree in zoology by age 22.
