Excelling in the classroom or in athletics are each remarkable achievement in itself; being elite in both is scarce territory.
Each year, My40 partners with Arby’s to recognize outstanding local athletes and students in our Bojangles Friday Night Rivals game. Each student is recognized in the broadcasts and receives the chance to win a scholarship to the school of their choice in Arby’s!
Nathan Hoyle is Arby’s 2021 varsity athlete of the year! The elder Chase High participates in golf and swimming, is vice president of the student body and is involved in several varsity clubs.
Hoyle credits the current state of the world with some of his success. “COVID really saved me,” Hoyle said. “I would say, because it kind of changed my whole perspective. I got better grades and my GPA increased and I got more involved in school as well. “
Hoyle, who says he’s planning to major in agribusiness and is considering the University of Tennessee or the State of North Carolina, gets a $ 2,000 scholarship from Arby’s.
Also recognized, Megan Turner is our Inspirational Student of the Year! In addition to sports, Dorman High’s senior volunteers at Carpenter’s Table Food Bank, participate in his church’s music program, have a high GPA and more. “I’m in my last year of Dorman High School and I play the flute and the piano and I do theater and tennis and I also dance,” Turner said.
Turner receives a $ 1,000 scholarship from Arby’s and hopes to study marketing at Catawba College or Western Carolina University.
