Our male Athlete of the Month for February will leave behind a legacy at Madison Academy for others to mirror for years to come. Zayne Riggins and success go hand-in-hand. This young man has been a 3-year varsity letterman, team and defensive captain, and was named to the 3A All-State Team…and that’s just football. Zayne is also a 2-year letterman for varsity basketball and a letterman running on the Mustangs track team. In the classroom, it’s much of the same outstanding accomplishments. He’s been named a Student of Distinction, been named to his school’s Principal’s list, has been an active member of the National Honors Society and even managed to win Homecoming King. In the little spare time he has, Zayne is a Math and Science tutor, a youth leader at his church, and a mentor for younger kids. Congratulations, Zayne!
Jessica Offutt is the kind of student athlete every coach and teacher wants to have on their team and in their classroom. She carries a mind-blowing 4.22 GPA, is a member of the National Honors Society, Beta Club and the Science National Honors Society. All this, while maintaining her strong status on the honor roll. On the field, softball is her game…and she’s very good! Jessica has gathered plenty of accolades playing in numerous tournaments. Her success got her named to the All-State team, the North/South All-Star team and the All-Region softball Team. Off the field and out of the classroom, Jessica is very active in her church as a teacher and volunteer. She also volunteers her time to help underprivileged kids and works with area groups to help the homeless. Congratulations, Jessica!
