NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) – Jessica Chandler is a three-sport athlete at Niagara Catholic Junior-Senior High School, and she’s also this month’s scholar athlete.
Chandler plays volleyball, basketball, and softball. Off the field, she serves as class president.
“My drive to be successful in the class in the fourth is to always get better at whatever I’m doing,” she said.
Chandler has been on high honor for all four years of high school.
She said, “There are nights where I have to stay up at night, study a couple hours where I have to put extra work in.”
Social studies teacher John Schneider says Chandler is unique.
“[She is] always prepared, always has an opinion, is always eager to share that opinion and as such she is an ideal student to have in the class,” he said.
Next year, Chandler will pursue her academics along with her softball career at Niagara University.
