Time Warner Cable News is proud to announce a new program designed to honor, highlight and celebrate the best "Scholar Athletes" in our local high schools.
Each week during the school year, we choose one scholar athlete for a profile that will be seen on Time Warner Cable News, TWCNews.com and Local on Demand - channel 1020. Those athletes will also be featured in a year-end special honoring all the athletes.
All nominations are to be made directly from school administrators or athletic directors.
Ana Santiago works hard for her success. The National Honor Society member is a standout at the discus and shot put, but her favorite is tennis.
"It's a good sport, it has a lot to do with the mind. It requires a lot of focus and a lot of precision as well. I'll say I'm good but I won't say I'm perfect!" she exclaimed.
Ana is good enough to make sectionals. Her demanding schedule includes AP courses, volunteering with the Red Cross and playing two instruments.
Ana's sisters were the first in her family to attend college. She plans to do the same.
