Zakary Gragson joined the Class of 2021 when he was in 1st grade. His favorite memory back in middle school was when he played football at recess with all his friends. Skipping on to high school, he will never forget going to IHOP with the boys and hitting all the crazy tokyo drifts in his car. Academically, Zak competed at the UIL State Academic Meet in Social Studies, along with some of his teammates, and placed third overall as a team. Mr. Rich’s welding class was his favorite class in high school. In the future, Zak plans to attend Stephen F. Austin State University and major in history or business. An inspirational quote he admires was spoken by Dhiman, “Feel what you need to feel then let it go. Don't let it consume you.” Zak’s grandfather is his role model and he would like to pass on advice to underclassmen as well, “Enjoy it, it goes by quick.” Best wishes to Zak and the Class of 2021.
