He's a student with an 'A' average and the captain on three different varsity teams, but that's only the beginning to this week's scholar athlete.
"I want to have my work applied and positively affect people's lives," says Andrew Korts.
Those are lofty goals for a high school senior, but you've never met Churchville-Chili's Andrew Korts.
Determined and inventive, the captain of the Saints cross country and track teams expects a lot out of himself and his teammates
"Every single day we all have to show up for practice, we all have to put in the miles, you have to keep running faster in practice or else you won't get faster in races," explains Korts. "You have to improve on all levels every day."
Andrew ran his personal best at the county championships this past fall and hopes to one day run a marathon.
However, the National Honor Society member also plans to study biomedical engineering in college and got an early start to that career through the robotics team at Churchville-Chili. He hopes that his career choices lead to making a difference.
"Whatever I do with my life I want it to make an impact on a significant portion of people's lives."
And we hope you do.
Congratulations Andrew Korts, the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the Week, presented by Nixon Peabody and the IDE Family of Dealerships
