He told WCHS, “Anything you do for 18 years in a row—it’s pretty hard to do, but I never missed a day.” He further added, “A lot of trips I missed out on and a lot of sick days. I just rested my head on the desk instead of in the bed.”

He also credits his strong immune system for allowing him to attend school despite feeling bad in only a few instances.

Initially, his parents encouraged him to never miss a day of school, but by high school, he too aimed to never take holidays.

Chestnut is not just a good student when it comes to academics, he is also enthusiastic about sports and takes part in a lot of activities, including wrestling, soccer, basketball, track and field, and has won medals for the same.

Apart from sports, the determined young man also frequents the wilderness of West Virginia and has a keen interest in fishing, hunting, and camping, as reported by the Good News Network.
