Hard work pays off for Zionsville middle school student

Five Essays. Five recommendation letters. Transcripts dating back to sixth grade. ACT score.

Sound like a lot? Now let’s add that a Zionsville seventh-grader is competing against thousands of other kids. 

Sawyer Scheitler, now an eighth grader at Zionsville West Middle School, underwent a rigorous application process that has granted him the Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholar Award.

The award is given out to exceptional students with low to moderate-incomes, who have demonstrated they have potential to excel, through both academics and extracurricular activities.

The award provides $25,000 per year of high school as well as personalized education adviser to help achieve goals. 

Scheitler will get a chance to meet the other scholars on a trip to Washington, D.C. in July, where he will possibly get to meet the president.
