Guest Speaker Kyven Gadson
Waterloo East graduate Kyven Gadson has wrestling in his blood. The son of Iowa State wrestling great Willie Gadson, Kyven made a name for himself in the sport, winning two state championships and going 68–0 in his final two seasons under the guidance of his father, Willie. Kyven was a recipient of the 2010 Junior Schalles Award for the top high school pinner in the nation.
Following his father’s example, he graduated from Iowa State University, where the Gadsons were the first father-son duo to win conference championships and achieve All-American status. Kyven placed sixth at the 2013 NCAA National Championship, just 13 days after his father’s death from cancer. A three-time NCAA Division I All-American, Kyven wrapped up his final collegiate season in 2015 with 30 wins and became the 69th national champion in Iowa State wrestling history.
Kyven is now a graduate student at Iowa State University pursuing a master’s degree in higher education leadership and learning. He aims to one day become a NCAA Division I athletic director.
