JHS senior Zachary Eklum was recently named February Scholar Athlete by WIVB in Buffalo. Zachary has an impressive resume and was also recently named New York State Athletics Administrator’s Association’s Section VI Student Athlete Scholar. He was one of only two selected.
“Your academic record, leadership, service, athletic accomplishments, application and essays were outstanding,” said Brett Banker, Chapter (Section) VI Representative. “The selection committee had a most difficult task in selecting an honoree. Your performance in the classroom, in your community and in athletics has certainly been outstanding.”
Zachary was also submitted to the New York State Committee who will select one male and one female scholar athlete from all 12 sections across the state who are eligible for a state scholarship.
