Student Spotlight: Andrew Clegg '17

Competitive running has taught junior Andrew Clegg many skills that he can use in college, career and life. He would like to attend the University of Oregon, home to one of the premier running programs in the country.

Each week the Scecina Student Spotlight introduces the Crusader Community to a current Scecina student who has been a recipient of the President's Academic Excellence Award.

By Cari Gallagher '93

Scecina junior Andrew Clegg is passionate about one thing, running, and much of his life is centered around the sport. His activities of choice at Scecina? Cross country and track and field. His biggest challenge? Finding enough time for sleep and school work within his rigorous, daily training schedule. His goal for the future? To be a collegiate athlete in cross country or track and field. And though his focus is singular, the sport of competitive running has taught Andrew a wide variety of life skills that will benefit him greatly as he moves toward college and a career.

You cannot reach the finish line unless you start.

Andrew began his journey toward academic and athletic accomplishment as a student at Little Flower Catholic School, one of Scecina’s East Deanery partner schools. During his time as a Little Flower Trojan, he was a permanent fixture on the honor roll and an integral part of the cross country program.

To be good at anything, you have to put in the time and effort no matter how talented you are.

Whether it is sports, academics (his favorite class is AP Psychology), or co-curricular activities such as Student Ambassadors, Andrew has learned that you have to put in time and effort to achieve success. This dedication and perseverance has earned Andrew many accolades during his time at Scecina. He is a three-time Scholar Athlete, a recipient of the President’s Academic Excellence Award and a 2015 Regional qualifier in cross country.

If you focus on putting one foot in front of the other, you will eventually reach the finish line.

As the second semester of his junior year at Scecina begins, Andrew is looking ahead to the next step on his journey – planning for college. His mother, Sandy, is a graduate of Butler University, and his father, Paul, earned a degree from Ivy Tech, but Andrew has his sights set out of state. He would like to attend the University of Oregon, home to one of the premier running programs in the country.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
