On Wednesday, April 13, the Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) recognized 82 of Ohio’s top students from across the state during the 27th Annual Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Awards Program, named in honor of Ohio’s 31st State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The award was established in 1989 by the OESCA to promote and recognize outstanding student leaders for their academic achievement and service to their school and communities. One senior from each county in Ohio is eligible to receive this honor, and Christopher Meade, a senior at North Adams High School, was selected as the Adams County winner from the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center.

“Over the last 27 years, the OESCA has recognized over 2000 scholars and student leaders during this event,” said Tony Long, Southern Ohio ESC Superintendent. “We wish Trey great success as he pursues his studies at the college level.”

Meade is ranked first in his class and plans to attend University of Rio Grande where he will pursue a degree in secondary education in the field of Mathematics.

Meade is a student leader, scholar, musician, and athlete. He is the current vice president for the National Honor Society, has been a member of the Beta Club, Spanish Club, Table Tennis Club, Talented and Gifted Program, North Adams High School Choir, All-County Choir, homecoming and prom committee, and has served as a teacher assistant.

Meade has also served his community through his participation in the Hoxworth Blood Drive, Annual Lions Club Fundraiser, Earth Day events, School Beautification, Lawn Care of Ill and/or Immobile Neighbors, Salvation Army, Annual Holiday Canned Food Drive, Toy, and Clothing Drives, Church Beautification, and Game Day Administration for Local Youth Basketball League.

Meade was the grade-level winner of the Americanism Test his freshman year and went on to be the Grade Level and County Winner his junior year. He also received the Ohio Congressional Commendation for Academic/Athletic Achievement.

A four-year member of the North Adams’ basketball and baseball teams, Meade was named team captain in his senior year. He was also named District 14 Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-District and Associated Press All Southeast District Special Mention in 2015, and OHSBCA Academic All-District in 2015 and 2016 in football. In baseball, Meade was named District 14 Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-District in 2015, Academic All-District and Sectional Champion in 2014 and 2015.

Looking to the future, Meade plans to one day teach secondary, upper level mathematics and coach high school basketball and baseball.

He is the son of Rob and Christa Meade.
