Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce its recipient for the
Joe Kennedy HHCA Scholarship for 2017. Austin Combs, son of Andrew
and Tonya Combs of 460 Hudson Ave, is our winner.
Austin is a
senior at Newark High School headed to Otterbein University this
fall. He has been a devoted student and is a member of the National
Honor Society. He has earned academic letters each of his 4 years at
Newark High with a GPA over 3.5 each year.
Austin has also
played varsity football since his sophomore year, lettering each
year. This year he served as captain of the team, voted to this
position for his dedication and leadership. He earned several
accommodations including Academic All Ohio and the Ohio Capitol
Conference Scholar Athlete.
It was a pleasure
to interview Austin. Not only is he a hard worker in academics and
sports, he also maintains a 25 hour work week at a job. He is most
pleasant to get to know and we can all look forward to hearing more
about his successes at college.
Kopachy (NHS) summed up his feelings about Austin with this
remarkable complement: “I have 2 sons at home, and I recall
recently thinking: “If my sons could grow up to be the type
teenager Austin is, then we will have done very well as parents.”
congratulations to Austin Combs our 2017 HHCA Joe Kennedy Scholarship
