GATES, N.Y. (WHEC) — "If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything."
That's a slam dunk sentiment from Serdrick Thomas, the Gates-Chili senior finished his third year on the Spartans varsity basketball team.
"I've been playing this my whole life and being able to bond with teammates and coaching staff, it's been a good experience for me,” Serdrick said.
Next year, Serdrick will attend RIT and major in management information systems.
He built his own computer and when he was in ninth grade he even designed his own app... and he's not done yet.
"I want to make an app that influences someone's life in a positive way, that can contribute to something good and make a greater impact on the world in a positive way,” Serdrick said.
Serdrick is also a member of the National Honor Society and volunteers with a program called Santa's Workshop.
"We went shopping for gifts, wrapped them at school and dropped them off at the homes of the people, the smile on the kids face was incredible," Serdrick said.
Keep reaching to new heights and doing great things, congratulations Serdrick Thomas, the News10NBC Scholar-Athlete of the Week!
