Image of Zackary ShannonZachary Shannon is living in South Korea now. The recent graduate and learner at NIHF STEM High School at APS is in the United States Army Engineering Corps. Coach Sam Crews from STEM and Mandarin Chinese Language Coach Qing Liang both wrote to us about this fine young man.

Liang wrote, "Coaches, most of you probably remember this young man. I am so happy to see that he carries his dream and made it happen. He is very happy in the last email that he can read some characters on the street in South Korea. He looks so awesome. Just want to share them with you."

Zachary is staying in touch with former teachers who are, as you can see, thrilled to hear from him. He clearly made an impression on them.

His mom, Tammy Shannon, also wrote to us to say, " Good Afternoon. Zach is starting to settle in to his new apartment in Korea. He finished his first field duty by spending two weeks in the field -- sleeping on a cot, no shower and eating MRE's. Loved every minute of it!"

She added that he would be stationed in Korea for another year.

Superintendent David W. James, Ed.D., said, "Akron Public Schools College & Career Academies promote the three E's: Enroll, Enlist, Employ. The district is thrilled to see students choosing a career in the military. The APS JROTC curriculum is a standout program among all public schools in America."
