Walker named Buckeye Charters Athlete of Distinction for January
Dayton, OH – The Athletic Department is pleased to announce that Men’s Basketball Guard Caleb Walker (Gahanna Christian H.S.) has received the Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction Award for the month of January.
Each month the Athletic Department in conjunction with Buckeye Charters, will select a Student-Athlete that has been a leader in all three categories; Community Service, Classroom and Competition – also known as the 3 C’s.
This month we would like to honor Sophomore Caleb Walker of the Men’s Basketball team. Caleb has been very active with the team this past fall with visits to the Dayton VA, serving Thanksgiving Dinner at the Feast of Giving and visiting Vets at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, DC.
He has continued to lead the way in the Classroom earning over 3.0 GPA this past semester and is on pace to earn Academic All-Conference honors at the end of the semester.
Caleb has started all 27 games he has played in this season and has been a part of the core group of sophomores that continues to set school records with the 5th OCCAC conference championship and a 26-2 overall record.
Special thanks go out to Buckeye Charters for helping establish this monthly award that honors those student-athletes that are great in the three C’s. Buckeye Charters have been providing quality and reliable transportation for student-athletes around the region as well as many other groups for over 22 years. They have proven over the many years of partnership with the athletic department that they also value the commitment to high standards, and this is why we are pleased to name this monthly award: The Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction
