Zack Coffey is one of 10 Revere Local Schools graduates to receive the 2021 Carson Higgins Memorial Scholarship. Here we share his story.
Watching his aunt keep her sense of humor and happiness during the three months she had between her cancer diagnosis and her passing in 2018 is something that has resonated with Zack Coffey. “Whenever I get down, anxious or troubled, I think about how fortunate I am to be healthy, to live an enjoyable life, and to have a good support system,” he said.
He has also challenged himself to be a well-rounded individual. He was active in many school organizations, including Rachel’s Challenge, student council, National Honor Society, football, and basketball.
“This scholarship means to me that my angels in heaven are looking down and smiling upon me, and guiding me through my next step in life!” he said.
Zack will attend the United States Naval Academy.
