Meijer scholar athlete Dustin Childs of Newaygo.
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- WZZM and Meijer are pleased to recognize Newaygo High School senior Dustin Childs as our Meijer Scholar Athlete of the Week for the week of September ninth.
An offensive and defensive tackle for the 2-0 Lions football team, Dustin sports a 3.75 grade point average and is active with the Sons of the American Legion and volunteer work at a women's abuse shelter. Dustin tells WZZM he would like to pursue a career in sports management or own his own restaurant someday. He says he has already earned college credits and will likely attend classes at Muskegon Community College next year.
Dustin says the highlight of his high school sports career so far has been getting a police escort as the football team arrived home from a stunning road upset at Reed City in the district finals of the playoffs last year.
WZZM and Meijer congratulate Dustin for his hard work and wish him continued success!
