Taron Banks, son of Jamie and Jodie Banks, was born July 8, 1994, in Sioux City.

Taron has two siblings, an older brother, Tyler Dawdy, and a younger sister, Tabitha Banks.

Taron is sometimes called “Full Count” by his friends.

Taron’s favorite sport is water polo; his favorite movie is Braveheart; his favorite musicians are MGK, Skrillex Avenge Sevenfold, and Technane; and his favorite saying is, “You on my level?”

When “Full Count” was little, he imagined himself as a doctor.

Taron’s favorite childhood memory is playing Monopoly with Gregg Taylor.

“Full Count’s” most embarassing moment is crying when he saw a clown in Discovergarten.

While in high school, Taron has been involved in Large Group Speech.

If Taron could relive one moment of his life it would be August 10, 2012.

“Full Count” is currently employed at Hummer’s Roadhouse.

Taron’s greatest achievement is making it to Large Group Speech All-State three years in a row.

What “Full Count” likes most about high school is being able to see his friends.

If Taron could give any advice to underclassmen, it would be, “Always work hard and never get down on yourself.”

Taron’s favorite excuse for not turning in his homework on time is, “I wasn’t in the room when it was assigned.” His favorite excuse for being tardy is, “My locker was broken.”

“Full Count’s” biggest regret about high school is that his senior year didn’t go as planned.

While in high school, Taron’s favorite class has been Pre-Calculus with Mr. Mike Baker because he enjoys math.

After high school, Taron plans to attend the University of South Dakota to study to become a math teacher.
