Reporter Rachel Dubrovin introduces you to Moscow High School Senior, Jerry Cook-Gallardo.
Moscow High School Senior Jerry Cook-Gallardo is a student with smarts.
"I'm taking calc and AP physics," said Cook-Gallardo.
"I run track and cross country at the high school," said Cook-Gallardo. "I've done two years of track and one year of cross country. And last year at state, we placed first in the sprint. I was the 800 runner."
"I also fence at the UI community club, University of Idaho," said Cook-Gallardo. "I've been fencing for 3-4 years. It's not very like, physically tiring. But it's sort of like physical chess, like a physical game of chess."
He says his parents help him stay motivated to maintain a 4.0 GPA, but he also has big plans for the future.
"I plan on attending Carleton College, it's a liberal arts school in Minnesota," said Cook-Gallardo. "I plan on majoring in biology or physics, and going into medical school."
Congratulations, Jerry. You're this week's "Academic All-Star."
