Teamwork is a hallmark of Chemic Pride. Aristotle wrote, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Chemic Hall of Fame football and baseball coach Terry Wilczek often praised his teams for their ability to make 2 + 2 = 5. In that spirit, Midland High School Athletics and Firehouse Subs on Eastman Ave in Midland are proud to recognize a teammate of the week who epitomizes selflessness and demonstrates a commitment to the success of his/her team. Just because the spring sports are not playing any games in 2020 doesn’t mean that there is a lack of great teammates to honor.
This week’s honoree is a member of the boys golf team, senior, Jackson Shinske.
Head Coach, Keith Vidergar nominated Jackson by writing, “His every day good attitude along with his affection towards his teammates makes him a perfect candidate. Never has he said a negative word about his team, he is always engaging with them and encouraging them to do better.”
Jackson is the son of Steve and Kimberly Shinske. He is also a member of the National Honor Society, Model United Nations, and the varsity tennis team at MHS.
