Senior Drew Tucker is serious about sports and school. He is committed to his education and never goes anywhere without his planner, his pencil, and his phone. He has taken full advantage of the diverse co-curricular activities and athletic programs offered at Scecina to grow in mind, body, and spirit.
“At Scecina I have had many opportunities to be part of different families by participating in different sports, including football and track, and clubs such as the National Honor Society, Key Club, and Student Council. These experiences allowed me to reach out to my community, and to learn from my teammates and peers. These opportunities have helped me to see other people’s perspectives and taught me about teamwork and service. My time at Scecina has taught me to be a better, more understanding person.”
Drew is the son of the late Jenny Deery and Larry Tucker and the stepson of Terry Deery. He will attend Butler University in the fall to study chemistry and biology as part of the pre-med curriculum. Drew plans to become a doctor. He also intends to use his education and his passion for community service to crusade against world hunger.
