Congrats to Our 2017 DI Graduate of the Year

By: Tina Shaffer

Congratulations to our 2017 Graduate of the Year, Zachary McCrary!

Zachary is a senior at Calhan High School in Calhan, Colorado and will be graduating as valedictorian. He strongly believes Destination Imagination (DI) pushed him to explore new areas and stretch the boundaries of what he thinks and creates. Zachary was part of a two-person team for six years and competed at Global Finals in nine Challenges over eight years. This year he did not compete; instead, he chose to appraise at the Regional and Affiliate level and volunteer at Global Finals. In addition to DI, he has been very active on the varsity wrestling team and in school musical productions. Zachary will be attending Carleton College in the fall, where he is interested in studying Anthropology, English, Cinema, or the Classics.
