This week’s Valley Sun All-Star is more like a super star. To hear La Cañada High School theater teacher Justin Eick speak of his student you can expect to hear a lot more about incoming senior Kevin Hurlbutt in coming years. “I guarantee you, whatever he does, he will be like a Barack Obama. [Or] he will be a Supreme Court justice. He will be someone who absolutely stuns the nation,” Eick predicts of Hurlbutt. Hurlbutt, 17, recently returned from a trip to Washington, D.C., where he was one of two delegates selected from last month’s American Legion’s Boys State — some of the top 1,000 young men from across the state — to represent California as senators at Boys Nation, a one-week, mock legislative introduction to the federal government.
