Weston Diblasi is our Student-Athlete of the Week! This University of Missouri freshman is a member of the Wrestling team and is majoring in Secondary Education. He is an active volunteer with our literacy outreach efforts in the Columbia, Missouri area. Weston's favorite aspect of serving as a volunteer is "just getting to truly interact with the kids. Getting to see their smiles and hear their laughs really brightens my day. I just hope I do the same for them."

We are proud that Weston is making a tremendous impact in his community!
