Sumter volleyball player named Grow Financial Scholar


SUMTER, S.C. (WACH)-- Each week during WACH FOX's Sonic Friday Night Rivals we recognize a scholar-athlete from each school with our partner Grow Financial Federal Credit Union.

At the end of the season, the students submitted videos for a chance to win a $5,000 scholarship.

WACH FOX and Grow Financial surprised a star athlete from Sumter High School Thursday.

McKenzie Michelson was named the Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She is the epitome of a scholar-athlete with a boasting 5.01 GPA and also staring as an all-region volleyball player.

The senior not only is a team player and scholar, she also is very involved in her community.

Though she hasn't picked which college she would like to attend, she has applied to Lander, Anderson and Clemson Univesity with plans on becoming a neonatal nurse.
