Accomplishments: An exceptional student athlete, Beta Club member and two-time finalist for the Gwinnett County regional and state science fairs, this straight-A student surmounts all expectations of learning in the high school classroom. Having received multiple academic and extracurricular honors, Jasper epitomizes the term whiz kid.
