Zachary Hicks, Del Valle High School student-athlete, maintains a standard of excellence by being the first student in Del Valle ISD to earn the Martin Luther King, Jr., Youth Legacy Award scholarship, while also earning Academic All-State in football with the Texas High School Coaches Association.
The MLK Youth scholarship acknowledges high school students for academic achievement and community involvement. Zachary was one of eight students who received the award.
Zachary will graduate this year and plans on majoring in political science while at college. Once he graduates from college, Zachary wants to get involved in political law and one day become the President of the United States.
“Who we, the students of Del Valle, are now is what’s going to make a better tomorrow. The students of today will become the leaders of the future,” Zachary said.
Zachary has been a part of the Del Valle ISD family since kindergarten, and he has been attending board meetings since that time, and Zachary has even established a positive rapport with board members and district administrators.
