April Scholars Athletes of the Week
May 15, 2017
Equality Charter High School will be naming a scholar athlete of the week going forward! With the athletics program growing we will highlighting one scholar who displays teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership and the true meaning of scholar athlete each and every day. Our first two scholar athletes are Jhon Paulino and Jada Clarke.
Jhon has not only been working hard for his track success but has been putting in the necessary time in the classroom. Carrying a 2.9 GPA and already earning 22 credits, Jhon is well on his way to becoming a scholar athlete graduate of Equality Charter High School.
Equality Charter had their first high school meet in high school history. Jhon, 3rd place overall, and two of his teammates (Darius Gordon and Abrianna Vernieri) started strong, earning top accolades in the 800m. Coming out strong was a statement that Equality will be a track powerhouse going forward.
Jada has been part of Equality’s first varsity volleyball team as they continue to prepare for the fall season. Carrying a 2.77 GPA and already earning 22 credits, Jada has shown she knows what it takes to be a student athlete.
Equality Charter will be starting a Varsity girls volleyball team this fall and Jada has been a catalyst in starting this team at the intramural level. Her coach, Ms. Warfield, nominated Jada because of her teamwork, leadership, coachability and positive mindset on improving her skills.
