Zoie Breland
FIFE HIGH SCHOOL

Zoie Breland has shown her dedication to her school and community throughout her four years at Fife High School, earning a total of 15 varsity letters in basketball, soccer, and track and field, while also creating the Unified Sports Program at her school.

Breland and the Trojans advanced to the WIAA State Soccer Tournament three times, including a trip to the quarterfinals during her sophomore season. She earned individual accolades on the pitch, being named an All-League defender during her junior and senior campaigns. In basketball, she qualified for the WIAA State Basketball Tournament during her sophomore and senior seasons.

Breland’s achievements span into the Unified division as well, for which she served as the Club President, founding the chapter during her sophomore year. In the three years since Fife has been involved in Unified Sports, the schools has garnered recognition from ESPN and the Specials Olympics, being named one of the top five programs in the nation.

“From sports, I have built relationships, I have learned teamwork, patience, communication, how to be a good listener, how to ask good questions, and a lot more,” Breland said. “My experiences and the skills I have learned from them have made me who I am today and I believe I am a better and happier person from being involved in sports.”

In the classroom, she has earned a 4.0 GPA while challenging herself with AP and honors courses. Breland has served in leadership positions during her participation in athletics as well as being elected ASB president as a senior. Her involvement in the community is highlighted by her participation in Key Club, National Honors Society as well as various other service organizations.

Breland’s selfless nature has interested her to pursue a career in nursing, where she plans to continue to help others.

  
 
Rocco Parrish
GRANDVIEW HIGH SCHOOL

Rocco Parrish has accumulated 12 varsity letters at Grandview High School as a three-sport varsity athlete in football, basketball and golf while being active an active leader at the local and state level, all while holding a 4.0 GPA.

Parrish’s accomplishments in the athletic realm are highlighted by qualifying for the WIAA 2A State Golf Tournament as a freshman, sophomore and junior. He garnered recognition as an All-Conference golfer during his sophomore and junior season and was named CWAC Basketball All-Conference as a junior as well. The Grandview grad made his mark on the football field as well as he now holds the school record for all-time passing yardage.

“I value interscholastic activities because it has taught me a lot about myself,” Parrish said. “It has taught me how to stay calm under pressure, be confident, be a team player and an honest competitor. Furthermore, Interscholastic activities have been a great gateway for me to meet new people and make friends.”

While he has captained both the football and basketball teams at Grandview, his leadership has stretched outside of sports, serving as a member of high school’s leadership class, the CWAC Sportsmanship Forum and the WIAA LEAP Committee. Parrish has spent his time volunteering for high school and community events and even initiated the “Hometown Showdown” – a weeklong competition dedicated to raising money for blood cancer awareness.

While he has aspirations of continuing his golf career at the collegiate level, Parish, the son of two teachers and varsity coaches, says he plans to pursue a degree in secondary education so he can return to the classroom as a mentor for others.
