Meet our NSCS Scholar of the Week, Zachary Lipsitz!  Zachary is a sophomore at Southern Methodist University, where he is a mechanical engineer major.

Zachary’s favorite experience has been all the NSCS membership perks uses to enhance his academic life.  According to Zachary  “Whether it is scholarship opportunities, membership partner benefits or the National Leadership Council; I feel that everything NSCS offers is perfect for where I am right now.  It’s helping me to pursue my future.

For Zachary academic life is all about balance.   He is both a scholar and an athlete at his university.  “I am on the men’s swim team and have been swimming competitively since I was 12 years old,” he said. “I was able to finish my freshman year with high marks which I was very happy with considering my rigorous classes and athletic training.”  He continued, “although NSCS offers wonderful programs like Semester at Sea, I cannot apply for those because of my demanding swim schedule.  I do hope, in the future, to take advantage of some of the great employment opportunities I find through NSCS.”

For his eagerness to make the most of his opportunities, Zachary is our Scholar of the Week! Congratulations!
