David Nash son of Dr. Michael and Charlene Nash, was named the Bloomfield Optimist Club’s Teen of the Month for August.

Nash is a trombonist in the DCHS Band, and this fall is serving as one of the drum majors for the marching band. He received an outstanding jazz soloist award in district competition last spring.

Nash sings tenor in the DCHS Choir and has been honored as an outstanding soloist at solo and small group contest. His biggest thrill in choir was when the men’s quartet consisting of himself, Jack Ball, Kenny Cronin and Kolton Stremler was awarded “Best of Center” at the 2019 district contest.

Nash has sung in Davis County Community Choirs and participated in the Davis County Players’ productions of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Little Mermaid.”

He played the role of Lumiere in the DCHS production of “Beauty and the Beast” earlier this year and in 2016 played Winthrop in “The Music Man” during the American Gothic Festival.

During his high school years, Nash has also been involved in cross country, National Honor Society, speech, Drama Club, Fellowship of Christian Students, and the Byte Jam Team.

He is active in the First Baptist Church in Bloomfield as well as 4-H and recently completed his Eagle Scout project.

Nash has not yet decided on a college major, but notes that music has been a driving force in his life.
