WARSAW, Ky. - This week, our Student of the Week is not one, but two Gallatin County High School students.
Twin brothers Luke and Eli Ackerman are juniors are Gallatin County High School and both perform well in academics as well as sports. They are both on the varsity soccer and tennis teams, Beta and science clubs and the Northern Kentucky Youth Advisory Board.
While they admit they have a lot on the plates, they say prioritizing makes it all possible.
The brothers, who are both Eagle Scouts, say they have a passion for helping others and giving back to the community. Through Eagle Scouts, they helped spearhead a recycling program at their school.
They said they hope their desire to give back translates into their job choices some day. While they don’t know where they want to go to college, they say the field of medicine is a career they like because it allows them to give back on a larger scale.
