This is no average Joe! No no. This Joe is way above average, and pretty much surpassing “excellent” in everything he tackles. First is academics, which he has been on NHS since his sophomore year, Illinois State Scholar and the tip top ten in his class rank. Extracurricularly he has lettered in Boys Tennis all four years, qualifying for state 9, 10th and 11th grades, and earned 4th place in 1A State in Tennis Doubles in 2018. His certainly a “right brain” and “left brain” balanced guy because he has also excelled in the arts. He played in the Combo Band for the award winning Mt. Zion Show Choirs, the Honors Jazz Band, MTZ Pep Band, and section leader for the popular Mt Zion Drumline. He was featured in the MT Zion Regional News in December, 2018 as Senior of the Month. This is just some of his accomplishments. Wow! It won’t end here, because Joe is headed to Indiana University’s prestigious Kelly School of Business, and hopes to continue his jazz drumming at IU’s School of Music. Yet despite all the above, Joe’s greatest attribute is that he’s super humble and kind. There’s a reason he was selected as the 2019 Prom King! Good luck Joe. Can’t wait to see what you tackle next!
