Student Spotlight: Berkeley Elementary's Bentley Driggers believes in never giving up

Published Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Berkeley Elementary 2nd-grader Bentley Driggers has a life lesson he wants to share with the world.

Never. Give. Up.

"You could get it right. If you don't get it right, that doesn't mean give up," he says.

Bentley has learned that doing your best and staying positive has a big payoff.

He also enjoys helping people, and that carries over to his dream of being a firefighter one day.

His favorite subject is math, but he admits he "doesn't do multiplication."
