Congratulations to Zach Hastings from Arrowhead High School who was named the winner of the "2017 Thursday Night Lights Scholar Athletes Award" last night during the ceremony at Mo's Irish Pub in Wauwatosa. Zach was one of 18 high school scholar athletes nominated this year by the athletic directors of the schools that participated in My24 Sports' Thursday Night Lights. The nominees were in the running to win the grand prize of a $5,000 academic scholarship provided by proud sponsor of the scholar athlete program, Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin.
All of the athletes were asked to submit a brief essay explaining their goals, accomplishments, achievements, and the importance of continuing their education. Zach's was chosen by the team at OAW as the winning essay.
My24 and Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin take great pride in supporting local athletes and the importance of academics. All of the scholar athletes enjoyed the ceremony and all received a plaque acknowledging their accomplishments.
Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin Chief Administrative Officer Mark Smith was on hand to present the scholarship check to Zach and his family.
Congratulations to all of the the scholar athletes and all of the schools that participated in Thursday Night Lights in 2017.
We look forward to another successful season of Thursday Night Lights in 2018!!
