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.
From the band room to the classroom, to the basketball court, senior Alex D'Arpino has made the most of his time at Greece Arcadia High School.
While Alex wasn't a starter for the basketball team, he was one of the first players off the bench, and he's made academics a priority too.
A member of the National Honor Society with a weighted grade point average of 98, Alex earned the highest score possible on the ACT.
While Alex is still weighing his options for college, he can see himself working in chemistry or physics one day.
