Zach Manzer and Kyle Fisk, seniors at John C Birdlebough High School, have been named valedictorian and salutatorian for the Class of 2013.
Manzer, son of Alan and Janice Manzer, has a weighted grade point average of 103.8. He has taken many advanced placement courses in his high school career, including AP American History, European History, Chemistry, Biology and Physics.
He is also a member of the National Honor Society, and a member of the track and field and cross country teams.
Manzer will attend the University at Buffalo for chemical engineering. He received the Provost scholarship from the college and wants to continue track and field at a collegiate level. The University at Buffalo is a Division 1 school and track and field at this level would be a time commitment.
“I love doing track, exercising and staying in shape,” said Manzer, who joked about keeping the freshman 15 at bay.
Manzer chose the University at Buffalo because he wanted to attend an accredited engineering school without having to go out of state.
