An athletic scholarship awarded to an accomplished Cape Ann League (CAL) senior XC and or Track & Field athlete who leads by example and whose outstanding performance and sportsmanship encourages and inspires others in the athletic community.

For the second straight year, the caliber of student athletes nominated for this year’s scholarship is truly impressive. Jackson was the standout choice for of our selection committee comprised of coaches representing each of the CAL schools.

Coach Steve Sawyer describes Jackson as an outstandingly gifted athlete. His love of competition, combined with the composure he brings to each event, inspires teammates and adversaries alike. A two-time high school All-American, Jackson set new performance records at CAL, All-State and Regional levels.

His dedication to good sportsmanship goes beyond his own playing fields; Jackson regularly attends the matches and games of his school’s other sports teams. He’s consistently supportive of his teammates’ efforts and is especially good at coaching younger athletes on developing proper techniques and training methods. Jackson will continue his studies and join the track & field team at Northeastern University in the fall.
