If one were to sit in on a class with 4th grade Discovery student, Amari Akakpo one would see he's for the most part quiet and to himself. This is not the case at the starting lines of a track event.
To the surprise of many staff and students, Amari is a student by day and track star by night. Amari won 1st place on the 4x400 relay team and 3rd place in Indoor nationals at USATF Hershey Youth Indoor Championships over the weekend. The program has helped birth stars such as Jeremy Wariner, Allyson Felix, Bryan Clay, and many others.
We want to openly congratulate Amari on his win. We will be cheering him on all the way to the starting blocks of the Olympics!
