Dawson on Monday was honored as Cate's winner of the Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award.

"Henry is one of the best candidates we've had for the Womble Award in a long time," said Cate athletic director Wade Ransom during the award presentation at the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon. "Academically, he's one of our top students in the junior class, which is amazing considering how many leadership positions he has one our campus."

Dawson helps students as a tutor in Spanish lab, is the junior class residential life representative, a member of student government, a leader of the Los Niños public service trip to Mexico and serves as co-head of the young men's forum. He worked as a student athletic trainee during the winter sports season.

He's a standout defensive player on the football and lacrosse teams.

On the field, he's as aggressive and fierce of a competitor you can possibly be," Ranson said. "Off the field, he's an extremely compassionate young man. He's the type of young adult that works to make sure all the students around are well taken care of. He certainly embodies the ideal of using your personal strengths to help other people."

Henry is the son of Ann and Michael Dawson of Washington D.C.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
