The Kiwanis  Club of Evanston  honored two more scholar-athletes on Jan. 28.  Despite the extreme cold, Will Jones (basketball) and Ashley Fox (cheerleading and badminton) and their parents made it to the Celtic Knot for a hearty meal and the admiration of all those in attendance. Will and Ashley are the 122nd and 123rd  scholar-athletes recognized with the Ted Van Zelst Award. Ted, a member of the club, was an outstanding businessman and engineer, a patron of the arts and a tireless advocate for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The students each received a certificate recognizing their accomplishments, a book on leadership signed by President Jim Wolinski and a $25 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble.
