One of the first questions we ask our Scholar Athlete of the Week is what drives you to get good grades. Many credit their parents, but Northeast College Prep senior Demetrius Pettway took it a step further. He said everything he does is for his mom. Demetrius added that she does the same for her children.
Demetrius Pettway hasn't looked back since. He has marched forward becoming a shining example of just how to better yourself. The Northeast College Prep senior has a 3.8 GPA, he takes AP calculus and environmental science. Demetrius wants to follow in his cousin’s footsteps.
Basketball has worked out for Demetrius so far. He is a captain of the Panthers and the team’s floor general. The game is helping Demetrius continue to better himself.
