Athlete of the Month

The October recipient of our Athlete of the Month Award is Colin Murdock from Hillsboro High School
"In addition to being very dedicated and hardworking, he challenges himself beyond most high school students."
-Missy Humphrey 
Teacher and Coach, Hillsboro High School
There are stories revealed about high school students that seem like the everyday norm for teenagers, and then there are the Colin Murdock's of our world that never cease to amaze. Colin is currently a member of the golf team at Hillsboro High School, where he placed first in the district in golf for the 2014 fall season.  Though he hoisted the trophy as a district champion, his coach has been most impressed with his excellence aside from the golf course.  The sophomore marketing student has earned a 3.9 GPA while enrolled in honors and AP courses.  He also has intentions of continuing his rigor by enrolling in International Baccalaureate courses as well.      
In love with Rory Mcilroy, Colin desires to attend college on a golf scholarship. However, the young golfer has plans that make his successful golf swing seem minimal.  Colin has made an impact on his community by volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank.  This passion to help others has inspired Colin to form his own business ideas that he says will allow him to help underprivileged kids to get the motivation they need.  He desires to have his company, Youth's Ambition, in full swing by the end of this academic year.  Be on the look out for Colin on the golf course and the community!
