Youth Spotlight: Hudson Downs


The first word we think of to describe Hudson is passionate.  He has a zest for learning with the wheels in his brain always turning.  He adds a lot of energy and humor to his family.  He’s an absolute fun person to be around.   Hudson is the 4th of 6 children in his family.  He has a twin sister, Brooklyn.  He’s a Junior in High School student with strengths in Math, Science and History.

Hudson absolutely loves participating and watching most sports.  Right now he swims competitively year-round with Mesa Aquatics Club, and on most days swims twice a day.  He just finished swimming with the high school, lettering for his 3rd year.  He’s also a certified scuba diver.

Hudson has a passion for all kinds of music.  He has an amazing talent for identifying musical artists, even dating back to the 60’s & 70’s.  He’s tough to beat in playing “Name That Artist”.  Hudson also plays the piano and trombone.  After finishing high school, he plans to serve a mission for his church and then looks forward to college.  We love having Hudson in our family because he’s a great young man with a tremendous heart.

Hudson is a Bass in INSPIRE: Youth and we are so thankful to have his powerful voice and his sight-reading abilities.  He is such a great musician and an asset to the group.
