STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK - ANDREW SPENCE

May 29, 2018


Andrew Spence, a junior at Hoover High School, is our student-athlete of the week. Andrew is a member of the football team.  This linebacker is also involved in youth groups at his church, as well as, weightlifting. When it comes to reading to the 2nd graders in his community Andrew is always the first one to volunteer and never misses a reading. In addition, he goes above and beyond with the children by trying to leave a lasting impression on each one. After graduation, Andrew plans to attend college and major in business.

He shares, “My favorite part of the being involved in the foundation is spending time with the younger children and helping them learn."
